The background of the construction of this brick dome goes back to the Seljuk period. One of the interesting architectural points of Khajeh Atabak Mausoleum is that the outer facade of the dome is octagonal, while the inner structure of it is foursquare. Since the firm continuation of the dynasty had been from the priorities of the Seljuk monarchs, they missioned people to accompany the princes from childhood to adulthood, and teach them how to manage and rule the country and how to manage warfare. These people were called Atabak. This dome is called Atabaki Dome because it is the tomb of Khajeh Atabaki, one of the famous Atabaks of the Seljuk period.
From other architectural characterization of this one-thousand-year-old dome, the special fillets of the Seljuk period can be named, which are visible both in the external and internal facade of the dome. A part of Khajeh Atabak Mausoleum was once destroyed due to natural causes, which have been repaired in recent years.
