Mausoleum of Seyid Ala Ad-Din
Actually the mausoleum is very unpretentious low dome construction deeply ingrown in the ground. Inside the mausoleum there is a nice majolica gravestone of the 14th century decorated with a vegetative ornament and Arabian inscriptions. Later to the tomb there was built a memorial domical-portal mosque. The whole brick complex of the mausoleum had been formed by the 19th century and repaired by order of Alla-kuli-khan in 1825.
