Located on the summit of a hill, Ramkot Fort is built over the site of an old Hindu Shiva temple. three sides of this hill top are surrounded by the River Jhelum. During excavations relics of the 5th – 9th century AD have been discovered near one of the temples.

The Sikh Maharaja of Kashmir further fortified Ramkot.
