Rangana Fort (Prasiddhagad) is a very rare example of what can happen when extreme nature and extreme human achievements can do. Rangana Fort situated in deep core forests and on a peek where even modern amenities fails in today’s world so one can imagine how and what made it possible to build and portray a fort structure in such dense and dangerous area. Rangana fort is famous as Prasiddhagad in the Maratha history situated in the Sahyadri Mountain on the boundary of Kolhapur and Sindhudurg districts of Maharashtra at the height of 2600 ft above MSL. Fort not easily accessible, strong and not easily defeat able even to enemies.
The Rangana area is spread 3 km long and about 1 km wide. There are many water tanks on this fort. It is said that Shivaji Maharaj used to stay on this fort while traveling from Raigad to Kokan and Karnataka. It has remained unknown to common man even today because of its construction at a place not comes in usual vision. History of Rangana is hidden by forests and hills and therefore, not gets attention of many. Without Rangana history of Maharashtra would be incomplete.
