Entry through the gate from the west side, Gate is formed by two concrete posts and a low iron gate. The main element of the cemetery is a monument made in the form of a portico decorated with a stylized image of crossed cannon barrels, distinguished from the wall, which is a fence of the necropolis from the east.
