Also, there are 44 rooms or chambers, 4 big halls (stables), mosque, private shabestan, fodder barn, gristmill and bathroom.
The materials used in Deir-e Gachin are brick, lime, adobe and plaster. The mosque of the caravansary was probably built in the place of the Sassanian fire temple and there are no decorations in it.
There are a number of structures around the caravansary as a collection including two Ab-anbars behind the western side and close to the bathroom, a brick furnace, a dam, and a graveyard in the south-western side in which the graves are covered with bricks and that goes back to the Islamic era. There is a brick-clay-made structure in the form of a fort 500 meters east of the caravansary which has only one entrance gate and its structure goes back to the Qajar era.
