The foundation of the Sabalgarh fort was laid by a great King Sabal Singh Gurjar in 16-17th-century, with the surrounding town also named Sabalgarh. Sabal Singh Gurjar was also the kiledaar of this fort and also a darbaari in the court of Karauli King. This hill fort is located on a large rock in the northeastern part of Sabalgarh, 

Presently, the fortress is in ruins and is infamous for stories of haunting and ghosts. The fort consists of a defensive structure and one main palaces and many other buildings. The fort has been controlled by a number of different rulers in its history.

Sabalgarh Fort is built in the Rajasthani style. It has three main gates and many temples are located within the fort such as Jagannath Temple. Also, have some other historical buildings in the fort include Naval Singh Haveli and the Royal Court (Kacheri). This Monument is a fine example of eighteenth century's fort planning. It was surrounded by an outer fortification wall on the north and the west side. A continuous fortification wall of 1,800 meters in length can be seen on the north side along the state highway, while some small sections of fortifications are seen along the east side. The east and west sides have the dense forest as a natural defence. There are also remains of a moat along the southern side. The Chambal River on the north and the nalla at the foothills on the west made the location of the fort more favorable. The inner fortification wall is strengthened with 12 bastions and has five gateways. The gateway on the north seems to be the main entrance into the fort. The inner fort had palaces, residences for the generals and elite (Nawal Singh Haveli), and other ancillary buildings like stables, kacheri (court), and temples.
