Product Description

Clouds know true desire, Gracefully lifting childhood hearts. Pat adults on the back who miss days of old, Fishing for simple strings to hold on to. Clouds understand what motives are. Do we act the same- no, Will we admit it- no. The sky winks though, as fire and nature collide. Don't mind showing mankind that nothing stays the same. Things change. ~ Peeka

About Fort: As the name suggests ‘Ratan’ which certainly means Jewel in Hindi, Ratangad fort is indeed jewel in all the hill forts here in Bhandardara region of Sahyadri mountain range. Ratan Wadi, is the base village for this hill fort. On top Ratangad has one natural rock peak with a cavity, peak is called Nedhe or Eye of the Needle. Ratangad was captured by Chhatrapati Shivaji Raje Bhosle and was one of his favorites. The base village Ratanwadi has an Amruteshwar temple which is famous for its carvings.
