The walls, which have been topped with wood to help with restoration, are made of individual stones stacked up about 3-3.5 feet high. Each corner has a wooden pyramid cap on it. On the front, in the left hand corner is the gate. On either side of the gate is a stone pillar, about the same height of the wall. On the left pillar is written:
