Popularly known as the ‘Bada Batashewala Mahal’ and built in AD 1603, Mirza Muzaffar Hussain’s square tomb and had a profusely ornamented interior though much of the interior ornamentation was lost due to neglect, water seepage and inappropriate past repairs wherein plain cement plaster was used on wall and ceiling surfaces that were originally decorated. Ornamental plaster medallions and the intricate muqarna patterns on the half-domed arched entrance bays symbolize the highest craft traditions of the period. The central grave chamber, several feet below the ground, is surrounded by eight rooms, making this an interesting example of the “hasht-bihist” plan – which represents the eight spaces of paradise as described in the Holy Quran.

After a careful documentation of the existing remains of original incised plaster work, restoration work of the decayed decorative patterns was undertaken. Completion of the restoring the decorative plasterwork included decorative lime plastering along with lime punning. The restoration of the incised plasterworks was carried by the master-craftsmen.
