The mausoleum of Sayyid Ar-Mahmoud is located under the green dome of the mosque.
The mausoleum was destroyed by ISIL in 2014 as part of a plan to destroy historic shrines in Tal Afar, Mosul and Nineveh. Explosives were planted at the tomb, completely destroying the green dome as well as the shrine under it and damaged several graves in the cemetery next to the shrine.
