The mound measures about 12 × 12 m and is 1.1 m high. The polygonal dolmen consists of four preserved supporting stones and a roughly 3.5 × 2.8 m, 1.2 m thick capstone. One supporting stone is missing on the north side. The supporting stones are 0.4 to 0.5 m thick, with an average size of about 1.4 × 1.4 m. The entrance is located on the east side. The chamber, approximately 1.5 m high, is polygonal and measures about 2.5 × 1.7 m. Remnants of smaller blocks are wedged between the larger ones. Surrounding the earthen mound is a square area about 12 m on each side. At each corner stands a boundary stone. A single boundary stone, measuring 0.7 to 1.1 m in height, is preserved on the west side.
