Originally the Fort was planned as a composite structure for the fortification of the town as well as for housing the Royal Palace. Alyhough Raja Rustam Khan originally belonged to Rathore clan of Rajasthan, the architectural style of the Fort had distinct Mughal influence although quality of construction had not reached the perfection of better known Mughal architecture.
During the Sikh rule (1819-1846) the central block of the building was added which bears the distinct influence of Sikh architectural style.Fort building in his present style and shape owes to the benevolence of Raja Moti Singh (1850-1892) who engaged an European arcitect to design the front block of the Fort. The work done was so superb that the appearance of the fort changed into a Palace of exquisite beauty which dominates the entire town of Poonch.
