At the two ends of Sarbineh, there are two small rectangular ponds. In the middle of the Sarbineh, there are some platforms above the ground level. The platforms are covered with turquoise tiles. There are some holes all over the place to put your shoes and other stuff. The ceiling and the walls of Sarbineh are made of brick.
