The body walls of the tomb are constructed of brick and stone structures. This episode ends with hedgehog fringes.

The top of the Shirin Hatun Mausoleum is covered by a dome resting on an octagonal pulley. The transition to the dome area takes place thanks to the tromps. Immediately at the entrance area, stalactites are seen pouring in. A flattened arched door can be mentioned in the main entrance section. This door is also marble jambedded. A small iwan is found on the side parts of the tomb. Colored glasses with pointed arches are prominent in the pulley section. Both door and window sashes are wood and are in original condition.
