The open courtyard has pillared corridors on three sides and a large prayer hall with 260 pillars on the qibla wall facing the western direction.Niches, corridors and pillars are encircled by fine geometrical and floral designs. To one side of the courtyard is the water tank. The artistic decoration of the sandstone panels in the building are a synthesis of Hindu and Islamic traditions.
