On the outside of the complex and to the south of Bu-Halima?s garden lies the ruins of an old gate. Through the other side of the gate is another tomb. This was built in 1547 for Isa Khan who was one of Sher Shah?s brave nobles. The design is built in the shape of an octagon and has been described as ?an architectural gem in Islamic art?. The idea for this type of tomb was presumed to have come from the tomb of Sikandar Lodi built some 300 years earlier.
