The most important feature of this building is the glazed tile work with which it's all exterior is covered and which has given it its present name. The flat mural surface panelled, and stylised flower designs with borders are depicted upon them in a wide variety of colours and shades as blue, yellow, green, orange and white. It is mosaic Of glazed tiles. The patterns are made of thousands of tiny pieces of tiles skilfully embedded into the plaster in the tessellated style. Each flavour I leave being represented by a separate title, the brick surface was first overlaid with a 2 inch thick coat of plaster, upon which a final coating of 1 inch thickness was done. The design was traced upon this upper plaster when in a plastic state, After which tiles 5/8th of an inch thickness were bedded into it, according to the design. Kashan in Persia was the home of this art, the tiles were therefore called Kashi Halla in Sindh soon became the famous as Kashikari. The technique of it's presentation remains the same it consisted of three parts: Plaster called Khamir, Glass called Kanch and Asthap, put between them it was a very complicated process in which various chemicals, sand stones and other ingredients were used, thought an elaborate system of heating and fusing in specially built kilns. this ensures the glazed tiles and their lustre to last for thousands of year.⠀
