It dates back to the III c. BC and is included in the World Register of Historical Sites in 1985. It consists of three chambers - an entrance chamber and two antechambers. It is covered by a mound. The decoration of the burial chamber is exceptionally interesting, a unique blend of art and architecture. The tomb has a unique decor, with polychrome half-human, half-plant caryatids and painted murals. The 10 female figures carved in high relief on the walls of the central chamber and the decoration of the lunette in its vault are the only examples of this type found so far in the Thracian lands.

The wall opposite the door is painted in navy blue crayon and depicts the eroticization of the deceased. Discovered in 1982 near the village of Sveshtari, this Thracian tomb reflects the fundamental structural principles of Thracian cult buildings. It is a remarkable reminder of the culture of the Getes, a Thracian people who were in contact with the Hellenistic and Hyperborean worlds, according to ancient geographers.
