Fort Songadh is located at  It has an average elevation of 112 metres (367 feet)..
The town is located at the foot of a solitary mountain, the surrounding area has been almost completely flattened by approximately 30 stone quarries. Due to these stone quarries, Songadh has very good road links to the city of Surat to its west and the state of Maharastra to its east.
The main town of Songadh is split into two parts; Junagam (old town) and Navagam (new town). Due to rapid expansion of the town in recent times, Navagam has outgrown the original Junagam and is characterised by the hustle and bustle of the Main Road almost any time of the day. This is largely due to the Bus Terminal which acts as a hub for cross country buses which are en route to the city of Surat. This passing traffic has bought much trade into Songadh as it is the first town as you enter Gujarat from the East (or the last before you leave from the West). The main town of Songadh is located on Highway 6 with Nandurbar district to its east and Vyara to its west. Surat is about 80 km from Songadh which has a higher population and substantially more industry. Surat has grown faster than other cities of Gujarat and consequently Tapi district was created from the former District of Surat and Vyara was selected as the capital of the Tapi district. Songadh is about 270 km from Ahemdabad international airport and about 170 km from Vadodara.
