The Sikhs contributed a lot to the fort by building Havelis (Mansions) during their reign in Punjab region. In 1847, Maharani Jindin was confined in this fort, under the supervision of one of eminent general of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, Sardar general Gurmukh Singh Lamba, along with Bur Singh of Mukerian till hostility began after Multan disturbances.
