The fort has a citadel on high ground and remnants of houses from those times nearby the citadel. The artefacts and the structures themselves sustained damages due to the rain.

Rains and floods in Sindh are now threatening the region’s most iconic features including the remains of the Indus Valley Civilization.

The lack of attention has led to more damage to the ancient ruins and now record-breaking floods have dealt a heavy blow to the restoration efforts.
