RATANGAD Fort History

Ratangad Fort, also called Nhavi Killa or the Barber’s Fort, [This fort is said to have got the name of Barber’s Fort from Dhanaji, one of its commandants, who was of the barber caste. Government last of Civil Forts, 1862.] stands about six miles east of Mulher. About half way up the hill is the chief entrance and inside the fort are the ruins of what must once have been a stately court-house. On the hill sides are about eight rock-cut reservoirs and on the plateau a temple of Mahadev and a Musalman tomb. In 1862 the fort was reported in disrepair, though naturally strong from the height and steepness of the bill.
