Janjira Fort

A massive fort of the 16th century, surrounded by the majestic Arabian sea from all the sides the Janjira fort, is located in the Raigad district of Maharashtra. Once the strong hold of Siddy dynasty, the fort has gained a reputation as an impregnable fort, since it had withstood so many attacks of the mighty Marathas and the English.

Originally built as a wooden structure by the fisherman to get protection from the pirates, Janjira fort acquired its present shape after reconstruction. Now the fort has a number of towers and turrets to keep the ammunitions in it to ward off enemies.

Being lashed away by the salt water for a long, much of Janjira fort has been putrefied and rotten. But the fort still remains with the same glory and grandeur.
To visit and experience Maharashtra hassle-free, view maharashtra tour package.
