Area: 0.05 Acre

The stupa lies between Khatter and Tando Muhammad Khan Railway Station on Kotri-Badin Branch lime and is about 5 miles from Tando Muhammad Khan. It is near the Railway line and is visible from it.

The site of the stupa lies on the eastern outskirts of a big city remains which are all strewn with brick-bats and immense quantity of potsherds. It roughly measures 98½  x76’-4”. On the top in its centre rises a conical structure of mud bricks which is pierced on its east to provide a cell measuring 8 ½’ x 4’-10” which has now been modernized with brick.  The cell has further been provided with a modern doorway of semi-circular arch and there are indications to show that it was also furnished with a modern door leaf probably for the protection of the dagba. The conical mud structure has also been modernized by covering the same with plaster on being washed away be the rains.

The stupa is enclosed by a modern enclosure wall about 3’-8” high and about 13½“ thick built with old bricks obtained from the site and has been mud plastered and further white washed on both sides.

Some dismantled bricks are lying in the site which measure 12”x6”x4½” and of 2 types one with niru plaster with an elaborate display of fresco paintings both in floral and geometrical patterns, and also depicting some life scenes at the interior. The exterior of the chamber and the platform bearing the chamber were also once treated with fresco in floral designs, traces of which are still available, though in rarity.
