In the center of the image is a massive stone Koran stand. It is located in the courtyard at the center of the Bibi Khanum Mosque complex. Behind the Koran stand is a pointed arch, part of a rectangular structure with a dome on top. The dome has collapsed; only the drum remains. Along the base of the drum is an inscription in Arabic.
