The rectangular mosque is covered with a Turkish-style tiled roof. It was called the “Broken Minaret” because it did not have a balcony, honeycomb gallery, or spire previously.

In the center of the north façade is a main door with a rounded arch. The mihrab and pulpit are in the form of a simple, undecorated niche. The minaret of the mosque in the eastern corner has a single balcony. Above the beveled transition segment on a square pulpit is the cylindrical shaft and then the balcony. The honeycomb gallery is topped with a spire and finial. There is a hexagonal fountain covered with a spire in the courtyard.
