Murud Janjira

Formerly it was the capital town of the Siddis of Janjira. Murud is today popular for its alluring beach, whispering casuarinas, coconut and betel palms, and an ancient fort.

On a small hill to the north is the shrine of Lord Dattatraya. The 300-years old fort of Janjira is an architectural marvel. It was considered to be invincible. The palace of the Nawab and the Janjira caves are also a must see.
And just a few kilometers away are two pristine beaches : Nandgaon and Kashid.
Nandgaon is famous for its Ganapati temple and the annual fair held in honor of this Hindu god every February.
