Close-up view of hospital portal. Great Mosque and Hospital of Divrigi (Divriği Ulu Camii ve Daruşifası). Sivas, Turkey. August 15, 2000. Not as densely decorated as the north portal of the mosque, the hospital portal nonetheless displays motifs executed in similarly high-relief carving. These include stylized vegetal motifs, large projecting medallions in crescent surrounds filled with star motifs as well as a pair of stylized plant forms surmounted by human heads (with their facial features mutilated at an unrecorded time) towards the outeredge of the portal. Above these, large engaged capitals suspended without columns lend a fanciful quality to the design, not unlike that discerned on the mosque portal and mihrab. The flat recess of the entrance also incorporates low-relief carving of vegetal scrolls although some of this was clearly left unfinished. The three-line foundation inscription of the hospital is located just below the mullion window.
