The dome which is 25 meters from the ground has 18 levels. The mausoleum has two monabbat (wood carving) doors adorned with Quranic verses and extensive mirrorwork has been used inside the structure. Imamzadeh Jafar Mausoleum was renovated and expanded during the Safavid (1501–1736) and Qajar (1785-1925) eras.
