With the tomb proper in centre and domed chhatris on corners, all built on an extensive three-tiered platform, it is a unique construction. The lowest tier has traces of chhatris on corners and a gateway and colonnaded chambers in front on the east, which make it abundantly, clear that originally the entire complex must have presented an impressive and magnificent view.

Evidently the tomb occupies the site of an earlier building, some parts of which were exposed during recent excavations .
