It has shape of upturned boat with rectangular base (interior dimensions are 4.8 m by 3 m or 15 ft by10 ft), is constructed from local stone with no mortar and stays with any reconstruction until this day. The walls are 1.2 m (over 3 feet) thick with linteled doorway (1.67 m or 5.5 ft high) and small window in the east wall.
