Tomb of Mir Musa Khan Talpur s/o Karam Khan, Chitori

Mir Musa Khan was son of Mir Alllah Yar Khan Talpur. The lower plinth of this square tomb measures 34 feet; the upper platform is 24 feet; and building proper is 18 feet square. It is on the east of Mir Rajo’s tomb, and is constructed in the same style. The lime plastered dome is intact, but cracks have appeared all over its surface. Its inner casing, which is of well dressed small yellow sand stone slabs, is well preserved. Outside a stone Kangura, partially intact, runs on all the sides and in each corner of the roof, is a small stone turret. Traces of stone bracket are visible below the kangura. A yellow stone pinnacle adorns the top of dome.
Inside, on a raised stone platform surrounded by carved railing, rests the grave of Mir Musa. The pillar of northern wall contains a stone inscription in Persian characters recording the Hijra year 1166 (1753 A.D) when Mir Musa died, and the cost of construction of his tomb which is rupees five thousand.
The building is square in plan, but inside corner lintels over the capitals make the plan octagonal, and support the dome. The floor is of stone slabs
