Do the chevrons on the minaret seem odd, even unattractive? No wonder! Syad Muhammad Latif, in Lahore: Its History, Architectural Remains and Antiquities.... (1892), writes that "the elegant marble fret-work surrounding the galleries of the minarets, which imparted a lightness to the structure, were removed by Ranjit Singh, who replaced them with masonry work. The marble fretwork of the uppermost story has been recently restored by the British Government."
