There is another tomb at slight distance of complex. The tomb built of baked bricks on the square was constructed above the polygons and was covered with a dome. However, as there is no grave and memorial inscription, its fixing wasn\’t clarified. The buildings included in the sanctuary complex have harmony with each other and have created a complete architectural ensemble. The medieval cemetery has existed around the complex. Gradually, some of the graves were destroyed, some of them still remain. There is a grave which was visited by the population in the sanctuary tomb included in the complex.
