Pravara river orginates in Ratangad. The local legend has it that Agatya rishi meditated and performed penance in Ratangad. At that place two drops of
‘Amrut’ was dropped and water started flowing out from Ratangad continuously resulting in the river Pravara hence the name ‘Amrutvahini’
Ratangad a 400 year old fort at a height of 4250ft is, as per folklore also one of the favourite forts of Shivaji Maharaj. The Wilson dam and Arthur lake,
The Amruteshwar temple and the Randha Falls – the region in the Sahyadris sorrounding Ratangad is truely a little paradise, a secret well kept, and
