Deori is a charming town situated on the banks of Sukhchain River, on the Narsinghpur road, in Sagar District
, Madhya Pradesh
. This 400-year-old settlement is 64 km south-east of Sagar
and is 240 km north-east of Bhopal
Ramgarh or Ujargarh, as the town was earlier known, was founded by a Chandela king in the 17th century. Later the town was rechristened as ‘Deori’, meaning the ‘abode of God’, after a temple was constructed at this place.
