The Hoshang Shah's tomb in Mandu is a brilliant case of Afgan architecture and craftsmanship. Hoshang’s Tomb is a mausoleum constructed fully with marble and is viewed as India's first marble tomb. It bears a balanced dome with intricate marble work. The uniqueness and the magnificent adornment on the southern entryway depicts the lotus and the blue enamel stars. In spite of the fact that it faces the entrance porch on the north, the access to the proper tomb is from the south through an entryway of stunning ornamentation and proportions. The interior is rather plain, but there are decorative moldings, like small arches with blue polish foundation running up and down the edge of the dome. The primary sarcophagus of Hoshang Shah is cut as a coffin with receding bands and with a mihrab at the top. Additionally, there are other graves beneath the dome, three of which are in marble. This imposing tomb has a small crescent at the crown which is said to have been transported from Mesopotamia or Persia.
