Murud - Janjira


Erst capital town of the Siddis of Janjira, Murud is today popular for its beguiling beach, coconut & betel palms, and an antediluvian fort. It’s famous for lonely fort along India's western coast that remained undefeated in spite of Maratha, Dutch and East India Company attacks. The word Janjira means an island. The word Murud means Habsan, or Abyssinian's land.

The name of the fort is a concatenation of the Konkani and Arabic words for Island,
"morod" and "jazeera". The word "morod" is peculiar to Konkani. In Goa, the word is generally used for those parts of the village which were originally dry land as against the fields, which were seasonally flooded. Thus, during the rains, the fields get flooded, but the morods never flood.

The State of
Murud-Janjira was known to the Maratha Empire as Habsan, the land of the Habshis. The Murud beach is very beauteous, clean and safe for swimming. Apart from the beach Murud is more famous for its proximity to Janjira at Rajapur.

You can reached there through Roha on Konkan Railway is the nearest railway station. Mumbai is 165 kms. by road.
