The mausoleum rises on a pink sandstone and marble platform, a hundred metres wide. Built on an octagonal level, including four narrower frontages, it thus gives the impression of a square construction whose angles would have been cut. The height of the frontages is 32,5 metres. The cupola whose top reaches 56 metres high is related to the type of cupolas created before in Turkestan in Bukhara and Samarkand.
