More than half the area of Vijaygarh is covered by steep and rugged hills of Kaimur Range. The Fort was under Kashi King Chet Singh’s rule until the arrival of British. The Fort is considered to be mesmeric and another fort is said to be hidden under this Fort. Near the main gateway of the fort is a tomb, which is said to be that of Saiyyed Zain-ul-Abdin Meer Sahib popularly known as Hazrat Meeran Shah Baba. Every year, in the month of April an Urs (Fair) is organized here which is attended by people from different religions and sects.
