● About ●
Ratan means Jewel in Hindi. This hill fort is indeed a jewel in all the hill forts here in Sahyadri. It is located in the district of Ahmednagar and is located about 4255 feet above sea level. It lies in the Ajoba mountain range surrounded by great mountains of Kulang, Alang, Kalsubai, Katarabai, Ajoba and Ghanchakkar. Geographically Ratangad is at the banks of Bhandardara lake of Ahmednagar district. With views of the lake and highest mountains in Sahyadris looks very much lost in time. At the base of this fort is ancient Lord Shiva (Amruteshwar) temple. About 1000 years old temple of Lord Shiva, the Amruteshwar Temple at Ratanwadi, is an absolute paragon of the high-class architecture of our ancestors.
Ratnagad also has four gates Ganesh, Hanuman, Konkan & Trimbak. One may also find numerous Wells and Water Cisterns at the top. There are also 2 caves at the top. One with the Temple and the other one is used for a stay. From this point, one can view various other forts of nearby region such as Alang, Madan, Kulang, Harishchandragad & Patta Fort.
