Our basic idea of the urban planning concept is a series of varied urban
spaces and visual points of interest (northern gate, octagonal corner, the
tree plaza, twin mashrabiyya, Birkah plaza, and finally the Minaret) that
occupy strategic locations that would orient pedestrians and themselves
enhance the beauty of the public plazas (sahat).
