The walls of this courtyard have false arches, and in the center of the courtyard is a large octagonal structure that is an area where water for consumption is available, on the top of which an inscription has been affixed. The main dome rests amidst the four porches that are on the four sides. The mausoleum itself resembles a castle that overlooks its surroundings from the interior and exterior sides.
