The Ibrahim-Rauza, built by Ibrahim 'Adil Shah II (1580-1627), consists of his tomb and a mosque. The mosque and tomb rise in apposition, facing each other from foundations in a raised terrace, with a tank and fountain between them. The mosque has a rectangular prayer-chamber with a facade of five arches, and is shaded by a ‘chhajja’ and a slender minaret in every corner.

The bulbous dome is decorated with a row of elongated petals along its base as it rises from a square fenestration. The square tomb displays double aisles, with the interior aisle adorned with pillars. Each corner of the facade is outfitted with two narrow arches, which are designed to take relief from the building’s weight. Inside, each wall features three arches, all of which are paneled and embellished with floral, arabesque, and inscriptional traceries. The chamber containing the tomb itself has a low curved ceiling made of joggled masonry.
