Description: Lies among other tombs and buildings erected during this period (about 1388-1400). It is without pretension and resembles the entrance of the Jami Masjid in the Fort. Above the square course, with its slightly inclined walls, a 2nd octagonal course supports the dome which is slightly pointed. A low wall of overlapping stones with tenon and mortise joints, and built on a little platform, surrounds the entrance to this tomb. Inscriptions above the door were added at a later date by Sikandar Lodi.
