The unfinished tomb of Ali Adil Shah II (d. 1672/1082 AH) was meant to be the greatest covered space in Bijarpur, but remains unfinished beyond the Gothic arches on the ground floor. It stands on a high plinth 65.5 meters square, with a central space of about 24 meters that was intended to be domed and contains 15 tombs. The square central space is surrounded by a double arcade of seven arches each. The tomb is dated in various sources from the 1650s through the sultan's death in 1672/1082 AH.
