Pangeran Wiro Kusumo (Said Indrus) was buried close to where he lived, within the complex of the mosque Jami Al-Ikhsaniyah.

The sign attached to the small building wherein his tomb is located indicates he passed away in 1902. Historical documents, as annotated in Sumatran Sultanate and Colonial State: Jambi and the Rise of Dutch Imperialism, 1830-1907, indicate he passed away in 1905.
