The two sides of the rooms appear regular; between them there are two iwāns and in each of the two sides there is a window decorated with a semi-circular arch and stucco ornaments.

The ceiling of the iwān rests on two pillars whose capitals were built in the Cufic style. The ceiling of the building has a barrel vault with wooden beams and the floor of the building is also covered with bricks. From the 1390 (solar Hegira) this palace is used as the site of the Ilam city agricultural museum.
