In the fortification of Taragarh, fourteen towers have special significance. On the wall of the fort going towards the east from the big door, there are three towers – the veil turret, the dummy turret, and the broken turret. The veil is constructed in a turret-it is not visible from a distance. Nowadays the government’s wireless is in it. This type of turret structure is considered important from the point of view of warfare. Next is the carpenter Burj, who says that Hazrat Bullen Shah was killed in the battle with Sayyad Miran Sahib so that the name of the Burj was recharged by carving. Now the ruins are visible only. Gibson Road to the city passes by itself. After this turret is the Shringar Chauri Burj. He is the closet of the Lords nowadays. Next to it are four towers- Atta Burj, Peepali Burj, Burj of Ibrahim Shaheed and Darwai Burj. After this, the Bandra turret, the tamarind turret, the window turret, and the Fatah turret. In addition to these towers, it is also characterized by a two-kilometer long parakota of the fort. Two cavalries on this parakota could run comfortably simultaneously.

According to the famous historian Diwan Harbillas Sharada of Ajmer, in 1832, the then Governor-General of India, Lord William Mantik, arranged a comprehensive settlement in Taragarh to arrange sanitarium for the treatment of the soldiers of Nasirabad Cantonment. Hence, there remained a sanatorium from 1860 to 1920. From 1033 to 1818, the fort witnessed more war than a hundred.
