The Aliabad’s sarai element is located in the mulit’s stretch or in the shops that is situated below the Masjid-e-eAlms which is at Aliabad. The design of this single structure is totally different and this lies inside the building that is made thick by the concrete.
In the olden days, the total area is surrounded by many big walls and there are a total of thirteen gates of Brobdingn and these doors are not allowed to open after dawn and once the light comes they will clean it. On the top of these gates the Barraza’s acts as the saris.
