Murud Janjira Fort
One cannot leave Murud without visiting the great Janjira fort. A black mass of impregnable rock, Janjira fort leaves one awestruck. A stone carving at the main entrance depicts six elephants trapped by a single tiger-a symbol of the bravery of the Sidis. Once the fort boasted of five hundred canons, today only a handful are left, still intact and able to tell their story. Amongst them are the three major cannons, Kalal Bangdi, Landakasam and Bhavani, the cherished weapons of the Sidis, built from five metals.

At one time when the village had no drinking water, miraculously there flourished inside the fort in the middle of the sea, two sweet water lakes. These lakes still exist.

Tour to Murud All the people living inside the fort moved out after 1959 and settled in Ekdara village, close to Murud, and it is their claim that Janjira Fort was founded by one of their Hindu ancestors of the Koli tribe called Rambhau Patil towards the end of the 14th century. Yet controversy rages as to the founder and no conclusive proof exists.

Unlike other beaches located on flat land, in Murud the beach is found at the foot of the hills. One stands on a vast expanse of sand stretching into miles, without seeing a soul. There is a compelling force about its bleakness, and a majesty about the waters.

This is where the weekender has his tipsy moments in complete privacy and where families find themselves drawn closer together. Hawkers have not yet destroyed its serenity, five star hotels have not commercialized it. Murud is untouched and unspoilt as yet.
