|This rug features a very detailed depiction of the Jam Minaret compared to others featuring the same scene. Ducks swim in the river behind the structure at the bottom of the field. Small residential areas and trees make up the center, while helicopters fly above and birds perch atop slender towers. The top of the rug features some text. Bright green and blue accents pop from the background.
Medallions run through the main border with guard strips consisting of multicolored 'x's.
