The fort was constructed with the help of craftsmen from different areas such as Kashmir, Balti, Ladakh, and Tibet, whose influence can be seen in the structure and architecture of this palace.

It consists of four floors built from Timber wood, mud bricks, and soil. It was recently restored by the Agha Khan cultural Department and now some part of it serves as a hotel and the other remaining part is made a museum.
