The Vairagad Fort is famous for the ancient temple of Lord Bhadreshwar. The fort lies on the banks of river Khobragadi and Sati and belongs to the kingdom of Nag. An Italian survey states that there might have been a diamond mine in the place. The name ‘Vairagad’ is said to be derived from the Hindi word ‘ Vajrakar’ which means ‘Diamond mine’.
