Very few of this type of sandook, which was shorter in height, were recorded across Punjab. It had plain simple panels and was painted using blue and silver oil-based paint. There was a carved wooden rail at the top of this sandook, a part of which was broken. The only other carved feature was the panel with fretwork fixed below the opening.
