about sheikh chilli’s tomb, thanesar

Sheikh Chilli’s Tomb, Thanesar, can easily be recognized by looking at the Grand Trunk Road that passes through the town. An old bridge and a sarai dating back to Sher Shah Suri's dynasty lies adjacent to the tomb. The architectural style is visibly inspired from the Persian style of architecture, is highly revered in the country and is also ranked second after the Taj Mahal.

Pathar Masjid, made of red sandstones, lies close to the western gate of the madrassa. It has fluted minarets and is decorated with several floral designs and patterns.  Adjoining the southern part of the building is a garden complex, made in the style of a typical Mughal garden--a charbagh pattern with a hauz (tank) in the centre.

There is a tank beside it which is connected with a raised open drain and is part of the water delivery system of the place, along with a network of pipes and cisterns.There is a park known as the Harshvardhan Park located in the eastern end of the monument.  There is an opening facing the main gateway that was used as the main entrance, where on the upper floor was an exclusive chamber known as Raja-Harsh-Ka-Tila. This was the place from where a higher authority figure used to address the gathering below.
