Hessing's Tomb was built in memory of Colonial John William Hessing, a Dutch officer who died in 1803. This tomb was built by Ann Hessing, wife of John Hessing, in the Mughal architectural style. The tomb is situated on a 3.4 metres tall square platform, which comprises an underground chamber.
The tomb has four octagonal platforms that are attached to the four corners. One of the platforms ascends towards the terrace via twin stairways that are located on the western side of the platform. Each side of the tomb has an iwan with two square turrets that are crowned by pinnacles.
These turrets are topped by square chhatris and vertical fluting. Atop the tomb lies the double dome, which has an inverted lotus and a kalash finial on its top. In the central chamber of the tomb lies the stone cenotaph, which has inscriptions in English.
