Inscription
All forts had buildings in which weapons and ammunition were kept safe. These were known as armouries and were heavily fortified buildings. The thick walls provided protection from direct hits, even the roof is built from cut stone to deflect shots fired at it.Their location in a fort was deemed to be one of the safest places away from the direct fire from the attackers. This armoury was so well built that it has lasted for nearly two centuries.
