The use of decorative bricks was in fashion during the Gupta period, particularly around Punjab and north-western India. Many brick temples from Kot in Punjab to Mirpur Khas in Sindh, and from Bhitargaon to Sirpur testify to the ample use of bricks with decorative designs in contemporary architecture. These bricks vary in size, measuring between 6 to 18 inches in length. The variety of their patterns is infinite, suitable for the embellishment of different parts of the architecture. The extant site gives a fairly good idea of the original arrangement of the bricks on the stupa.
