On both sides of the main arch gate there are two tall round towers with the thickness of the walls more than one meter. The towers have eight loopholes. In front of the gate there are big sofas on both sides, where the artillery was placed. After passing the Arch Gate, we see guards on both sides. After crossing the middle section, two huge hillocks can be seen in the left and right directions of the Arch.
There were prisons here. In one of these prisons, Vose, the leader of a popular uprising against the tyrants of the Mangit, was imprisoned for his execution in Shahrisabz. At the highest point on the right side of the fortress was the governor’s residence. The low western part of the fortress was called Ushturkhona. Horses and camels were kept here. In the northern part of the fortress there was a round square called “Askarkhona”. A spring of water gushes out from the Askarkhona.
There was a gate in the western part of the Askarkhona, from where food and household goods were brought into the fortress.
