The fort is built on a sloping landscape at the foot of the hills. On the lower slopes of the hills, the remnants of the king's palace may be found; trees surround the pond region, and a natural stream flows into the pond within the palace grounds.

While you may be enamored with the grand architecture when you visit, many people say they are plagued by worry and are frequently worried and restless. Some visitors have even expressed a strange feeling of paranoia, as if someone were following them around. The reason why, despite its popularity, people avoid staying too long on the fort's grounds.
