Taragarh fort was renowned for its tunnels crisscrossing the entire hillside, which helped the king and his deputies to flee in case of danger to their lives. The Taragarh fort has huge water reservoirs, which were built to store water and supply it to the residents during the time of crisis. These reservoirs have been carved out of a rocky base of the fort and it is said that if released in full force, the water from the reservoir can wash away people residing below. The fort also has massive stone tower within the fort complex called Bhim Burj. This tower was built to house a huge cannon named Garbha Gunjan, which is regarded as the second largest cannon in India.

Rani Mahal is a small palace within the fort complex, which was occupied by the wives and concubines of rulers. The Taragarh Fort also has Miran Saheb ki Dargha , built in the memory of Miran Saheb, who was the governor of the fort and laid down his life in an encounter.
