The third section, in turn, is divided into two. The first part is called the Palace Garden, which is decorated with ornamental and fruit trees, grown vines and palace courtesy. The second part belongs to Haram and is called the "Forty Girls' Garden". The forty girls' garden is divided into eight flower-beds. Each flower had its own trees, shrubs and flowers, and marble covered pools. Both gardens are separated from each other by a high wall.

Part Four - The inner palace is the main part of the settlement. The hillside was built on a more than four meter high artificial hill to distinguish itself from other parts of the horses, to cool, to emphasize the main part. The area around this one hectare, is surrounded by a solid rectangular foundation. The foundation is surrounded by a square bricks and a ganch blend of "Muslim bricks."

The interior palace features a 40-meter-long cylinder with a length of forty, six feet wide. The stairs were made of spruce wood, and the two sides were rising along a brick wall. Stairs were underneath. There is a substitute for the underpass, leaving the area between the fork and the gate. The official palace is divided into three parts: the court, the Shahnakert, and the Haram.

The courtroom is part of Devon, Reception, Treasury, Hotel, Engraving, Small Reception, Mosque, and surrounded by the main courtyard. Shakhnishin (a place where the khan’s office) was made up of the Khan's courtyard and the khan's house.

The interior palace consisted of an architectural building and a hundred and fourteen rooms. The number one hundred and thirteen pointed to the number of Surahs in the Holy Qur'an and the architects tried to portray this number in their buildings. Ten of these rooms have been preserved.
