The current changed structure of the Emamzadeh is a work of architects in the recent century. On the inscription of the door, it has been mentioned about the decorating with cut mirrors by the order of then governor of Kashan. On the other inscription, it has been written about the ancestry of the Imamzadeh, who has been buried there and he was apparently a descendant of Musa al-Kadhim. In the inscription, it is written also the name of the structure's founder, Khaleh Beygom. Khaleh Beygom's grave is also in the building and there are a few poems on her gravestone.[1]
