The tomb is located in a walled garden and is open to visitors on Fridays. The two-story structure has a square plan and a single dome. The lower floor of the building is a crypt, while the first floor is a masjid.
A door with a depressed arch on the north façade provides access to the masjid on the first floor. There are inscriptions in niches with pointed arches on both sides of the door. One of the inscriptions bears the date of construction and its benefactor, and on the other, a verse. There are two rectangular windows with iron bars at the ground floor level on the east, west, and south façades. The niche of the mihrab has a profiled rectangular frame. It is delimited by cippi with acanthus capitals on both sides and topped with three rows of muqarnas recesses.
The lower floor is the burial chamber (crypt) and is reached by going down a 10-step staircase below the floor level on the north façade. The stairs are closed off from the exterior with an iron door. The plan of the room is close to a square and lies underneath a pointed barrel vault. The sarcophagus is on an east-west axis.
