Ratnagiri is a town in Maharashtra state, India. It is situated on the coast of the Arabian Sea.
Ratnagiri served as an administrative capital under the Bijapur rulers. In 1731 it was captured by Satara kings, and in 1818 it came under the control of the British. There is a fort located on a headland near the harbour. Ratnagiri has a palace where Thibaw, the last king of Burma, and, later, Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, a Hindu nationalist freedom fighter, were restricted.
The town is a part of Konkan division and has a marine biology research station. Ratnagiri is a popular resort. The region is bounded on the east by the Sahyadri Hills of the Western Ghats. The landscape has been dissected by the rapid streams due to heavy annual rainfall in the hills, creating infertile plateaus. Rice and coconuts are the chief crops of the region; areca palm, mango, cashew nuts, jackfruit, ratambi and many other fruits are grown in the area. Coastal areas are heavily engaged in fishing, and forestry yields quality teak, ain, kinjal, khair, and other trees. Iron ore and bauxite are the most important minerals in the region, and iron is exported through the port. The region is dependent on Mumbai for its non-agricultural needs, where much of Ratnagiri’s working population work.
