Immensely rich in art and architecture the fort is beautifully decorated with amazing designs and intricate work. The site is said to be the last place where Mughal emperor Akbar rested which then stood as the most majestic fort enhancing the royalty and chivalry of the Mughals.

The place is set like the Char Bagh style which means the tomb is in between four fabulous gardens or one garden divide into four. Each of the gardens is magnificently laid out with amazing flora species and is separated with a raised path.
