The said structure consists of a porch, mausoleum, dome, courtyard and a few family vaults. Here 6 persons have been laid to rest, these were the off springs of Imam Ali Ebne Abu Talib and Imam Kazem (AS). The construction of this mausoleum dates to the pre-Safavid era. There is a strong possibility that the same had been a tower like structure, and during the Safvid period a porch and five porticos were added to it. Under the dome, three tile-worked tombs are noted, which seem to be of the Safavid period.
These tombs have lattice worked sepulchres to the date of 106th AH. The porch has three arches in the center of which is a platform overlooking a pleasant scenery. There is also a smaller porch which is a relic of the earlier times when the structure was constructed. This mausoleum is the tomb of the daughter of Shah Esmeil Safavid I. The same is adorned with fine vertical and horizontal epigraphs in embossed Tholth script.
