In addition to Chouragarh, Singorgarh was also the capital of Emperor Sangram Shah. The empire of the Emperor Sangram Shah was so large and it was spread to 52 Garhas. The prince Dalpatshah could live on any palace. But, Singorgarh was his favorite palace to stay. They spend some times of a year in Singorgarh fort. At present, fort is in a ruined condition with no caretaker. It is located inside forest area and there is no proper road to reach the site. By looking at current ruined site, one can realize that during its peak days, thousands of people were living here and fort was spread over large area and many watch towers are still visible in this area. There is pond also in hill-top which was basically for water arrangement. During last war of Garha Kingdom dynasty, under rule of Rani Durgavati, fort received major blow of first attack in June-1564. During those days, Rani Durgavati was staying in same Singorgarh Fort and later shifted to Chouragarh fort of Narsinghpur.
