The fort is very sturdily built with strong and high walls on an undulating hillscape. The fort is mainly divided into two major sections the Upper fort and the lower fort. The upper fort consists of the now standing watch tower building while the lower parts is completely in the ruins with a lord Shiva temple still intact.
