The one-story, flat-roofed building is square in plan with a smaller, rectangular extension to the west. The main entrance is marked by a portal, located to the south. The interior is centered on a large square courtyard with a house for the poor situated in the middle and a mosque immediately behind. An arcade around the courtyard perimeter separates it from the surrounding rooms and halls. The complex also comprises public health baths, a bakery and a market.
