Silversea Luxury Cruises A Murud-Janjira

Murud-Janjira is the local name for a fort built in the 17th century, located on an island located off the coast of a picturesque, small fishing village of Murud within the state of Maharashtra, India. The word “Janjira” has Arabic roots, derived from the word Jazeera, which means island. The impressive, uniquely oval-shaped fort remains mostly intact and ranges up and down the hilly landscape, surrounded by ocean in all directions. The fort houses three large cannons, which when operable were known (and feared) for their long shooting range. View more
