Its cylindrical minaret is decorated with prominent vertical lines and has a single cycle consisting of muqarnas with multiple stations and covered with a conical obelisk in the style of minarets in the Ottoman style.
It is based on a cylindrical base like it is located in the southeast corner of the mosque, like its counterpart in the Sultan Hassan Mosque.
