* ABOUT RANGANA FORT : Rangana fort is situated at 95 km. distance from Kolhapur at direct south side on the border of Kolhapur and Ratnagiri districts. The Kolhapur - Gargoti distance is 48 km. Rural University at Gargoti is Moni Vidyapeeth. About 35 km. from this place, is Patgaon, a resident place of Moni Maharaj. This was the old lane supplying essential girds for Rangana residents. S. T. Buses travel up tothis place. There is Hanmanta Ghat at 9 km. from Patgaon. For many years it is learnt that a regular highway from Kolhapur to Vengurla in Goa may be built by passing through this Ghat. At the edge of Ghat there is small village named Tabmewadi. The road from Patgaon to Tambewadi is very uneven. One walkway from Tabmewadi turns towards Rangana. In the 8 km. distance of this way one has to cross three deep valleys. This road passes through thick forest.
