Photograph of the Mehtar Mahal, Bijapur. The gateway has three storeys, an arched doorway and two narrow minarets. There are walls to either side and the Mihtar Mosque can just be seen beyond the wall to the right.
 
This photograph is one in a series used to illustrate a 1866 publication on the architecture of Bijapur. The city is renowned for its historical buildings with the early 17th century Mehtar Mahal gateway noted as one of the finest examples.
