Dear Vibers ,
We are glad to invite you trek to Ratangad on Sunday 2nd November 2014.
Brief Introduction about Ratangad: -
Fort Height: 4225 ft. ( Above M.S.L. )
Base Village : Ratanwadi
District: Ahmednagar As the name speaks, Ratanad is described as “Jewel Fort of Sahayadri”. It gets the name as it is origin for the river “Amrutvahini”. Located in the district of Ahmednagar, it stands tall to 4255 feet above mean sea level. The fort is about 2000 years old and is situated at banks of Bhandardara lake.
The main attraction of this fort is “Amurteshwar” temple which falls into “Hemadpant Era” ( way back to eighth century ). It truly defines the ancient sculpture of our great ancestors due to it’s carving.
It has a water cistern which is usually filled with water throughout the year and was one of the largest rainwater catchment area for its time.
Ratangad is a natural rock peak with a cavity at top that measure 10 feet high and 60 feets wide, thus forming a needle eye sort of appearance called as “Nedhe”. This is caused due to Wind Erosion and one can experience the nature’s power over there.
Fort has a main entrance called as “Tryambak Darwaza.” Also we have some remains of smaller entrance to the fort called as “Chor Darwaza”. Two ladders have been added to provide easy access to the main fort area.
