This two-storeyed temple/mausoleum is named after the four Indian obelisks or what might be mistaken for pyramids, each 10 foot high, at the top of the building. The temple is dedicated to the Nabatean god Dusares.
The carved stone blocks in the foreground, some over 20 foot high, are also dedicated to the god Dusares (Lord of Shera).
