The area covered by the district is approximately 3900 square kilomertes and is flanked by the other districts like Raipur, Bargarh, and Naupara. The city abounds in granite as well as limestone rocks; a few of these rock formations belong to Pre-Cambian era. Apart from limestone, these rocks are also found in shale, sandstone, quartz, dolerite, and neo-granite forms. It is for these rocks that mining activities are carried out here on a large scale.
A major portion of Bagbahara is inhabited by the tribals like Kharai, Sonar, Saharia, Munda, and Saur. Other tribals that are known to exist here are Bahalia, Binjhwar, Kamar, Pardhi, Saur, and Kanwar.
