The crown gate in the southern part of the khan is in the form of a rectangular prismal. The pointed arch, designed in the form of a broad border, opens directly towards the facade part. Double-row porches connected to the walls by arches also add a special colour. The mouth of a cistern was unearthed coincidentally during the repair process.
