The river Musi and its northern bank is the highlight of the map. The river Musi, a tributary of the Krishna River, originating from the Ananthagiri Hills near Vikarabad is famous as much as Hyderabad famous. The original city of Hyderabad was founded on the southern bank of river Musi by Muhammed Quli Qutb Shah in 1591 A.D, and over the centuries, the city has grown into both banks of the river. The old city lies on its southern bank, which was the seat of power till the 7th the Nizam, Mir Osman Ali Khan. Also, the people of Hyderabad will never forget it due to the recurrent floods in it, and the worst one occurred in 1908 which led to the reorganization of the city itself. Subsequently, the Nizam shifted his residence, since then the city center saw a shift into the northern banks in particular. So, the role of Musi is inevitable for the city of Hyderabad both positively as well as negatively, not only in the past but also at the present too, in the forms of canals and dams constructed over it for the distribution of water.
The settlement area on the northern bank of the river, crossed by a channel diverted from the river seems for the distribution of water than a carrier of drainage, depicted on the map. The Major settlement is around the Mukhtarpura street, where many other street lanes are meets together and formed a junction, there, interestingly a gateway namely Chau Burji is identifiable on the map. Besides the residences, temple, garden, and Chilla are also visible on the map. The word Chilla has many meanings like 'retreat' in western religious terms, whereas both in Arabic and Persian literally means forty. It is a spiritual practice of penance and solitude in Sufism. The Sufi/dervish isolated from any human contact and remain in a practice of meditation without food for forty days and nights within a small room like the ritual of Arbaeen, an observance take place for forty days after the Muharram 10, especially of Shia Muslims. So, here the building also seems such one.
