Description: The dome of this tomb is related to that of Ibrahim Rauza of Bijapur. The mausoleum is the oldest of those built in Golconda. It has columns tin characteristic Hindu style on each side. In subsequent tombs this is replaced by a series of Muslim arches, and the style becomes simpler, but the dome and the general form of the tombs remain the same. -- Erected in 1612.
