Caption Elevation drawing of the foundations and preserved lower courses of the west wall of the mosque, featuring the use of bonding column drums laid horizontally in the construction of the foundations. As with the qiblah wall, the depth (ca. 2 metres) and strength of the foundations indicate the considerable weight and pressures the wall was expected to carry, including wooden beams and heavy clay tiles
