The eco-friendly craft court at Shilpgram has a green cover on the roof of the shops which acts as a natural air-conditioner and is completed without any use of chemical paints. The technique has been extensively used in constructions of Agra and Delhi forts. The traditional architecture of the Rumi Gate and Imambara is reflected in the bazaar of Shilpgram.
