This description is taken from documents at the time of the Mughal court;
...There was raised a kind of platform of brick and mortar in one solid block...To serve as a plinth of this exalted mausoleum--which evokes as a vision of the heavenly gardens of Rizwan and epitomizes, as it were, the holy abodes of Paradise.
