The 16th-century complex is spread over 11 acres and has two chaharbagh gardens with three tombs—Bada Batashewala, which is the tomb of Mirza Muzaffar Hussain, the grand nephew of Humayun, the Chhota Batashewala and an unknown Mughal-era tomb.

AKTC’s work was to restore the integrity of the monuments and replace the 20thcentury alterations of the structure. In 1989, about 150 structures were erected within the complex and walls enclosing it were demolished.
