The Chhote Khan Ka Gumbad is the other tomb that lies adjacent to Bade Khan’s tomb and it is not certain if they were built at the same time. It is believed that they were related in some way, with Bade Khan being an elder, such as a father or a teacher. It does not have the pillars like the other one, but displays some excellent colourful tile work on the upper parts of the dome; although worn out, one can still notice the blue tinge on these walls. Green parrots often find shelter on the cracks of the walls here, and they create a really pretty picture.


The Bade Khan and Chhote Khan tombs are barely a few feet apart. A pathway has been built surrounding them. The compound is disproportionately small for the size of the monuments. The minimal free space is tightly surrounded by walls and beyond them lie the residential & commercial establishments and hence it is difficult to get a clear, wide view of the compound. There is another smaller tomb just a few metres away from the twin tombs. It is not in a very good shape and there are no information boards visible here either.
