|Description:||Is in the same style as the tomb itself, built on a square ground-plan|
and standing on the same platform. Main characteristics of this tomb and its mosque are the tapering minarets which end in domes which are almost globes, supported by open petals forming a collar, and the large number of brackets supporting the porch-roofs. It was built by Ibrahim Adil Shah 1 in 1615. The interior is very ornate with arabesques and inscriptions. The ceiling is coffered. The dome of the tomb is double.
