Shergarh is the most strategic. Even today, if one is required to guard the Kaimur Hills as a vantage point for a larger empire, the sites would still qualify.

Shergarh is strategically located at a distance from the Rohtasgarh fort on the other extremity of the plateau with its base on the banks of the Durgawati. While the Rohtasgarh side of the plateau is connected to the main plateau only by a small stretch of rock at Katautea Ghat and is surrounded on two sides by the River Sone and on one side by the Ausane, the Shergarh side is connected to the main plateau, and is protected on two sides by the river Durgawati. The famous stalactite caves of Gupteshwar lie at a distance of only about 11 kms from the fort of Shergarh
