It is clear from the appearance of this monument that the roof of the dome was made of bricks, and inside the dome, apparently, had gypsum decoration, which is collapsed, and its lower part (if it had decoration) is destroyed.
Materials used in the walls are ballast with plaster masonry from outside and lime from inside.
The Jabalieh Dome was registered in 1937 and was converted into a national treasure of Jabalieh (historical inscriptions) in 2004 after the restoration. Inscriptions contained in this treasure include the inscription of the mosque Abdar Ashkan Rabbar. This inscription is one of the oldest inscriptions in this treasure that is related to the memorial of a mosque in the highlands of the northern part of the city of Abdar Ashkan Rabbar, in the city of Baft.
