The monuments in the complex blend Persian, Pathan and Hindu architectural styles and are built with local granite. Surfaces of the historic buildings are ornamented with intricate incised plasterwork and few monuments also bear glazed tilework. The tomb structures are derivations of the geometrical designs of the earlier Bahmani tombs of Bidar though the stucco ornamentation carried out here is more intricate and on a far greater scale. Through 2012, exhaustive recording, documentation, condition assessment, surveys and research exercise carried out by the multidiscipinary Aga Khan Trust for Culture team as a precursor to the Conservation Plan that forms the foundation for the project.
