Murud-Janjira Fort - PramsPhotography #88

#2017 @Murud-Janjira fort, Maharashtra, India

Clear sky, blue water, sunny day, well surrounded by ocean and an Indian navy boat - having all these together is as rare as it is. We were to take a ferry to reach the Murud-Janjira fort, located near Murud village in Konkan coast line. Couple of clicks are of the sail when its tied and when wide open. Had been to Elephanta caves earlier in a boat in sea and this was the only second time I traveled in a boat in sea and that too for the first time ever to reach a FORT! Until then the forts that I knew or visited were all built on huge mountains. Inside the fort there was a big well, as can also be seen above. Surrounded by ocean, the water of the well was said to be really sweet; I could not taste though! After roaming around the fort it was understood that the fort was built on a island and the fencing of the fort was extended right until the last rock could be seen; hence it feels as if the fort was built in sea! Whatever, this is said to be one of  the ancient forts and felt amazing to walk in there.
