Palace of the Nazaries

The detailed decorations found everywher in the Palace of the Nazaries were simply mind-boggling. Can you imagine how long it took to carve all the little arches and niches and reliefs in this one arch alone - and do you have any idea how many arches there are scattered throughout this rather large palace?
One other thing I found striking was the fact that most if not all of the arches that weren't doorways had bowls placed on the floor at their entrances. I never did figure out if that was some sort of religious custom or what.
