This is a colour photograph of an ancient monument. It shows a horizontal line of six broken columns of varying height standing on a strip of grass.

Behind the columns to the left is the tall apsidal end of a large ruined building. The open domed part of the apse is decorated with a lattice pattern with a smaller diamond shape in the centre of each space. A niche can be seen in the curved wall below.

A small portion of the side wall of the building is visible adjoining the apse to the far left. Sections of broken columns can be seen lying on the ground in front of the apse.

The walls of other tall buildings can be seen close to the apse on the right of the photograph.
