چار مینار (حیدرآباد، بھارت)____1591
An Indo-Saranenic Style/ #Architectural Composition
یہ چوبرجی (لاھور)نہیں بلکہ تلنگہ (ریاست حیدرآباد) میں دریائے موسی (Musi) کی مشرقی جانب واقع تاریخی یادگار چار مینار ھے۔
یہ یادگار 1591 میں قطب شاہی خاندان کے پانچویں بادشاہ
محمد قلی قطب شاہ نے تعمیر کروائی تھی۔
یہ عمارت دراصل طاعون وبا کے خاتمے کی یاد میں منائی جانےوالی ایک مسجد ھے۔
اسے قطب شاہی دور کی اعلیٰ ترین تعمیراتی کامیابیوں میں سے ایک سمجھا جاتا ھے۔ چارمینار ہند-ساراسینک انداز میں ایک عظیم تعمیراتی شاہکارھے۔ یہ سٹوکو آرائش کیساتھ گرینائٹ اور
چونے کے مارٹر سے بنایا گیا ھے۔
مربع ڈھانچہ ایک طرف 66 فٹ (20 میٹر)، محراب 36 فٹ (11 میٹر), اور زمین سے کل 160 فٹ (49 میٹر) ھے۔
محراب کے اوپر دو منازل بھی ہیں۔ پہلے پہل یہ قطب شاہی دور میں ایک مدرسہ (اسلامی کالج) کے طور پر استعمال ھوتا تھا اور دوسرے میں ایک چھوٹی مسجد تھی.

As I recover from #COVID19 I remember the strength of my ancestors, esp my grandfather #DavidOhannessian, who mastered ceramic art in Ottoman Kutahya in the years before WW1, survived exile during the #ArmenianGenocide & founded the art of #Armenianceramics in Jerusalem in 1919
I tell his story in a book #FeastofAshes & share here a sample of his art, which changed the face of Jerusalem, where he carried over the Ottoman Kutahya ceramics tradition. This art continues to flourish today in the studios of several Armenian families. a.co/d/5sJrGkp
One of #DavidOhannessian’s most characteristic works in Jerusalem, the tiled triptych made for St John’s Ophthalmic Hospital in the 1920s, when it was renovated by #architect Austen St Barbe Harrison #Armenianceramics
