The architectural complex of "Khazrati Shoh" i.e. mausoleum was built on the place of the grave of the saint, whose name was Khazra posho mir Khamza.

There are many fragments of artistic carving on the ceiling, therefore the scientist suppose that the mausoleum was built of an old building or near it. Primarily it was square wooden mausoleum.

There were columns in the south-west part, and adobe walls in the north-east one. Koranic inscriptions on the perimeter purlins and on the board friese is evidence about it. The columns have some right-angled deepenings for decorate gratings and mosaic. Elements of the façade was badly kept because of weather influence. An ornament of the columns isn't made out, the wooden surface is decolorized.

The Middle Ages building is contained into the new building made of adobe bricks in the style of Fergana burial places.

A type of decorations of the friese with Arab epigraphy has no analogue. It has unique design of figured interlacings and high skilled carving. Finished lines, perfect compositions and high skilled carving is evidence of existance of professional school of calligraphy in Central Asia of Kara khanid period.

The architectural peculiarities such as combinations of semi-columns and flat crossing of purlins with decorate pendant, two-ended consoles make the monument unique work of architecture of Central Asia.
