The Niujie Mosque - Dougong by Nayzak The Niujie Mosque - Dougong by Nayzak
Assalaamu alaikum [peace be to you],

Here's is a closer look at the Colourful dougong supporting the roof of the minaret in the Niujie Mosque in Beijing.

Dougong (斗拱 dǒugǒng) is a system of brackets unique to traditional Chinese architecture. These brackets, arranged like baskets of flowers, are set under the overhanging eaves, adding to the sumptuous magnificence of the buildings.
