Location Details

There is no reference of Ranjangiri in the historical scripts. There are many such forts which were a part of the historic events. They played an important role in the freedom struggle but were at the backstage. The remains of the historic structure have been disappeared at Ranjangiri over the years. During the reign of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj this fort might have been under the rule of Swarajya since, the nearby Trimbak, Anjeneri were a part of the Maratha kingdom.
User Experience

The spread of the fort top is north-south.Ranjhangiri is termed as a fort due to its rock cut steps and the water tanks carved out on the rocks on top. Talking about any fort, one thinks of fortification ,bastions ,entrance gateways and palaces.But none of these can be seen here.An early morning trek to Ranjhangiri is very pleasing with its surroundings fresh in the early sun.The entire region has many forts and hills, trees and shrubs. It takes one to completely another world where the regular chores of one's life are left behind.To the east of Mulegaon is seen the spread of Ranjhangiri.The top of the fort looks like a Ranjhan in marathi,which means a vessel that holds water.It might have derived its name from the same.The pathway is very slippery so one has to be very careful while climbing up the fort.There are some dry water tanks seen on the fort top.
