Devgarh village lies on the right bank of the Betwa River, at the point where it
joins the reservoir formed by the Rajghat Dam. The village is at the western end
of the Lalitpur hill range, situated 23 kilometres (14 mi) south-east from Lalitpur
town in Lalitpur district and 123 kilometres (76 mi) south of the divisional administrative
centre at Jhansi. The village is spread over an area of 5 square kilometres (1.9
sq mi) with an average elevation of 211 metres (692 ft).
The fort of Deogarh is in a valley which generally has a gentle slope. The valley
is formed by the Betwa River at the western end of the hills of the Vindhya Range.
Known earlier as Vetravati (Sanskrit, meaning "containing reeds"), the Betwa River
is a tributary of the Yamuna River, and skirts the foot hill on its southern side.
The river, flowing at a bend near the fort, has a rocky bed. It flows in a cascade
of deep pools with steep rocky banks of sandstone formations. The fort is located
on a precipice of the steep cliff, just above the river on its right bank.
