The stupa sits atop a Corinthian capital bracketed by four felines with wings and beaks. Its elaborate form suggests it was placed in a shrine where it was seen rather than enclosed in a solid masonry stupa. A similar masonry stupa in a monastic cell at the site of Kalawan attests to veneration of this stupa type in the late Gandharan tradition.
