Composite roofing with brick domes and brick vaults
The roofing structure here is a composite work of vaults and domes. The Domes are used for the main enclosures. The beam on which it rests cantilevers the slab outward. This is done for rain water drainage for which a gutter is provided along the edge of the slab.
