The architecture of the tomb is reminiscent of the Taj Mahal and the tomb of Hoshang Shah with the four domes marking the corners of the tomb. Furthermore, the tomb is on an elevated platform and is a square structure with high arches on all four sides supporting the dome.
The arches on the interior walls set in blue tiles bring colour into the otherwise sober interior. The lattice work in stone is an ingenious way to let light and air in while acknowledging the art and archeological practices of the era.
