As the name suggests the main feature of Chaunsath Khamba is the massive sixty-four pillars supporting the roof. (Chaunsath is 64 in the Hindi and Urdu languages). The structure was built earlier as a hall and was later converted into a tomb. There is a beautiful marble pavilion inside the tomb and its architectural beauty makes it worth a visit.
Surrounded by an enclosure, the main entrance to the tomb is from an imposing arched gateway, adjacent to the famous Ghalib Academy. The Ghalib Academy was established by the government and has an extensive library of Urdu Literature along with a well-maintained museum.
