The Janjira island fort is a marvel of architecture, situated deeply in the sea about 3 km from the coastal town of Murud. Though the Arabian Sea crashes relentlessly all around the fort, its impregnable walls continue to stand strong and tall at 40 feet high, even at full tide.
It is spread over 22 acres and has 19 towers and a huge number of turrets, each of which had a cannon installed on it, some of which are still intact. Now in ruins, the fort in its heyday was a full-fledged living fort with all the necessary facilities, as for example palaces, quarters for officers, mosque, two big fresh water tanks, etc.
To reach Janjira from Diveagar, one has to go first to Dighi port which is 17 KMs away from Diveagar.
Distance from Resort: 15 KMs
