Built by Rana Prithvi Singh, Arki Fort carries a great history of blood shed and power struggle. Till 1815 this formation was the strong hold of the Gurkhas from where they led their war against the British. Now turned in to a heritage hotel, the then strong hold of the erstwhile Baghai rulers presents artistic grandeur and historical excellence to its visitors.

A fusion of Rajput and Mughal architectural styles, the fort is greatly influenced by the rajasthani structural designs. A unique style of painting namely the Pahari style, which adorns the walls of the fort, tries to depict the contemporary lifestyle of the hilly people. These paintings displays exemplary craftsmanship with a perfect balance of colours.

The fort is a private property of the descendants of the Arki rulers, who dwell in one portion of the fort. Though the fort is not managed properly, its heritage hotel wing upkeeps its royal elegance and princely status. Its elegantly decorated rooms house spectacular paintings of the snow capped peaks and other splendors of the region.
