Near to the Mecca Gate are two domed tombs known as the Jod Gumbaz (two domes).

The octagonal one is the Tomb of Khan Muhammad and of his son Khawas Khan, Wazir to Sikander. Khan Muhammad was assassinated for his treachery in the field. The tomb has a high dome which springs from a foliated band of ornament . Within is a fine chamber. The plain square tomb is the Mausoleum of Abdul Razzak Qadri, the religious tutor of Khawas Khan and a much revered man. To the west is a third tomb, said to be that of Siddi Rahan, a minister under Mohammad.
