The three loculi (compartment to house a body in a tomb) in the facade, high above the courtyard, are unique in Petra. The central one is closed by a stone with a relief of a bust of a man wearing a toga.
On the very top of the pediment there is the urn after which the tomb is named.
Also unique is the large forecourt, originally with two colonnads on both sides, of which only the northern one is preserved.
