After the tombs were built, through the 15th and 16th century, there were villages located right beside the tombs. In 1936, people from these villages were relocated to revamp the space into the garden that it is today.

The tombs in the park have been in existence since several years, some of them built even in the 15th century. Since some of the structures are in a deteriorating state, the space is protected by Archaeological Survey of India (ASI).
