History of Murud-janjira

Murud was the 15th-16th century capital of the Siddis of Janjira. This indomitable fortress inspired the Maratha chieftain Shivaji to launch several attacks, but the fort remained unconquerable to the last. The fort built 2 kms into the sea, is one of the most important sea-forts in Maharashtra. The ancient fort still retains its strength and grandeur.
