The Janjira Fort is a mammoth fort built way back in the 16th Century and is circumvented by the majestic Arabian Sea on all its sides. Located in Murud Janjira, in the district of Raigad in Maharashtra, this fort is a strong testimony to the great rule of the Siddi dynasty.The fort is said to be impregnable given the fact that it has withstood the numerous advents of the English, the Dutch, the Portuguese and the Marathas.The fort was originally built of wood; however it later acquired a fortification that helped it house the ammunitions to help fight the enemies. Despite the many years that have gone by, and the salty Arabian Sea that lashes against it, the fort, though putrefied, still stands tall and proud to this day.
