The Sultan Ali mausoleum is part of the 360 complex, which is located 2.5km north of the architectural site of Konye Urgench. The complex is built on an old graveyard, and divided into two sections. To the east lies the museum and Matkerim Ishan mausoleum, and to the west the Nedjmeddin Kubra mausoleum, Sultan Ali mausoleum and Piryarvali mausoleum. The 360 complex is named as such, due to Kubra and his 360 followers giving their lives to battle the invading mongols on this site. To the right of the path leading to the western complex, a twin domed brick structure will be passed. There is also the remains of a tree which is bent towards the domes which has cloths of different colours attached. To the right of the domes was a simple brick grave marker, where locals placed money as a tribute. This is a popular area for pilgrims.

If you continue into the courtyard, the "bowing" mausoleums of Sultan Ali and Nedjmeddin Kubra will be seen. The Sultan Ali mausoleum is on the right and pales in comparison to the Kubra mausoleum. The Ali mausoleum was never completed, and there are traces of sticks used in the construction, which are still visible on the building. It has no decorative tiles. The bowing portal was it's most significant feature, but the wall at the rear of the structure, was also slightly leaning. It is designed based on the Turabek Khanum Mausoleum. The main difference is that Ali's structure is two domed. It was to be the last major construction in the city, as with the rise of the Khans in Bukhara and Khiva, the city lost it's significance. This was further exacerbated by the change in the direction of the Amu Darya river in the next century which led to the abandonment of the town.

Ali was the governor of Urgench, and the son of the Khwarezmian ruler Avanesh Khan, who ruled between 1535-38. Ali died in 1565, and the construction of the mausoleum started in the 1580's. In this area, the grave of Dzhamildzhan should be viewed, as he was Kubra 's favorite pupil. His death was the reason why Kunye Urgench was "cursed", and destroyed by the mongols, as related in local tales. A nearby attraction, is the Kubra mosque, which is 1km south west of this complex.
