Fascinating Spots :

      Route to the top of dategad is a battered entry-door. After proceeding through this entrance one can see the idols of Lord Ganapati and Lord Hanuman that are 10 to 12 feet in height. These idols are sculpted in the fortification itself. Although temples are very common on the forts, huge idols of deities like these are rarely seen. After climbing around 20 steps in front of the entrance, fort top is reached. Turning towards the left, one can see some descending steps. These steps are spanned approximately 50 feet vertically and lead directly to a well. This well is an awesome architectural masterpiece. At the mouth of the well rests a sacred Shivlinga. Apart from this well, there are a few water cisterns in the other part of the fort. Fort top being small, all of these places can be visited in approximately 30 minutes.
Ways To Reach :
      To visit Dategad, reach to “Patan” village which is situated on the Karhad - Koyananagar route. Start traveling on the road to Chiplun in front of the Patan ST bus stand. After traversing some distance, one can see a hill behind which rests Dategad. After climbing this hill for roughly 45 minutes one can see a “dargah”. Moving further there is a house and a plateau behind it. After crossing the plateau one arrives to Tolewadi. An average person should be able to cover the distance between the “dargah” and Tolewadi in 45 minutes. Dategad is situated behind the hill in the foreground. Also, there is a valley between the hill and Dategad. The route along the brim of the valley leads to the base of the Dategad. There are steps to get to the top of the fort. Around half an hour should be sufficient to cover the distance between Tolewadi and Dategad base. A relaxed journey from Patan to Dategad should not take more than 2.5 hours.
