Information

About place

As the name suggests, this is truly a ‘Jewel’ amidst the forests in the region. It is an interesting fortress, situated at the edge of Ghats with numerous water cisterns and caves. It also commands an excellent view of all surrounding areas, overlooking the Konkan plains, Bhandardara Lake, Katrabai cliff, Alang-Madan-Kulang and the huge wall of Ajoba.

Ratanwadi is the base village for the Ratangad fort trek. A steady uphill climb of about 3 hours leads to the top. One must negotiate the small chimney to enter the fort.
A thumb-like pinnacle (Khunta of Ratangad) facing Alang at 4037 ft., is an interesting proposition.

The robustness of Sahyadri can be experienced only from a few forts and Ratangad is one of them. Standing in the “Eye of the Needle” is a major attraction.

Amruteshwar Temple

The trek begins from Ratanwadi village. Make your way to Amruteshwar temple once you reach the village.
Amruteshwar temple is an intricately carved Shiva temple located in Ratanwadi; this temple is over 1200 years old. This beautiful temple was built by the rulers of the Shilahara dynasty in the 9th century CE. This is one of 12 lord Shiva temples built by king Jhanj.
