Completely fascinating, Sk! I've never seen this magnificent structure before and your photos are absolutely pristine and perfect! I'm intrigued by the floral reliefs in #23 & 24. Thank you so much for letting me peruse it through images and information.

Wow SK! What extraordinary opulence. Is this what owning an oil field buys?

Very impressive tour. I'm struck by the engineering, but not much by the design. Perhaps once it's acquired the patina of age, it might be more human. The flower "atrium" seems fascinating.Thanks for the visit.

It's magnificent, maybe too much. This architecture is splendid, its wealth is quite obvious. It is beautiful but cold. For me, this place is lacking emotion... But it is only my opinion.
In any case your photos are superb !
