It is a tomb of an unknown nobleman from Lodi period. Unlike other tombs, it is open on all sides, no doors and lattices. The tomb is characteristic of twelve pillars and three arched openings on each face. The passage, around the central chamber, has four domed sections at each corner.
It is in the Nizamuddin heritage area at the entrance road to the Nizamuddin Dargah. It is at a distance of 7.5 km from New Delhi Railway Station and 2 km from Hazrat Nizamuddin Station. In the past, this place became a hangout for vandals and unwanted people in the society. The walls were defaced with graffiti and paan stains (spitting saliva mixed with chewed betel leaves). The ASI is taking serious steps to restore this old monument to its old glory. Behind this vintage structure lies yet another monument called Lalmahal, made of red sandstone. It is not in good shape. since British time, the road has been known as Barakhamba Road.
