Chor Minar is a rubble-built tapering tower situated about 300 meters southeast of the Idgah. Built during the Khilji period, the tower is fixed on a raised platform and has a staircase in its interior.

The exact use of the tower is not unknown but it is believed that it may have functioned as a watchtower. However, some believe that the heads of burglars and thieves were placed in the circular holes present on the exterior of the tower to discourage the people from unethical activities.
