Aga Khan Trust for Culture - Shigar Fort Residence - Baltistan

The complex at Shigar comprises the 400-year-old Fort/Palace and two more recent buildings, the “Old House” and the “Garden House”. The former Palace of the Raja of Shigar has been transformed into a 13-room heritage guesthouse, with the grand audience hall (see back cover) serving as a museum of Balti culture and featuring select examples of refined woodcarving, as well as other heritage objects.
