The district forms a portion of the hill country of [[Bundelkhand]], sloping down from the outliers of the [[Vindhya Range]] on the south to the tributaries of the [[Yamuna River]] on the north. The extreme south is composed of parallel rows of long and narrow-ridged hills. Through the intervening valleys the rivers flow down over ledges of granite or quartz. North of the hilly region, the granite chains gradually turn into clusters of smaller hills.
