The fort is located at 4255 ft above sea and stepping ston is surrounded by the highes prakat of Alang, Madan, Kulang, Ajoba, Katarabai, Kalsubai and Ghanchakkar. From the base village one can see the hole at the top of the mountain called Nedhe (marathi translation ‘Eye of the Needle’), the pinnacle called ‘Kutha’ on the right and the caves on the left end of the mountain which can be seen only with the help of binoculars.

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.
