As the accurate date and year of building of the Masjid is not known, archeologist assume this Mosque was made between these years. The overall Size of the Mosque is 17.67meter X 6.22meter. The Seven Dome Mosque has 03 domes in north to south side and 04 dooms in four corners. In total it has 07 domes, that’s why people call it Sat Gombuj (Seven Dome) Mosque. All the 07 domes are almost in same size.

It has a small gate in front of the mosque. The gate itself alone count as an archeological tradition.  It has a grave yard in east north corner.

Inside  boundary, there is a big flower garden, which is also property and part of the Seven Dome Mosque. Boundary of the garden of Seven Dome Mosque ends in the road and just opposite side of the road there is also a small construction which is actually a shrine (Majar Sharif). People assume that one daughter of Shaista Khan is sleeping in this Majar sharif.
