Janjira fort is located at a distance of around 55kms from Alibag. It is at a height of 40ft above sea level, established by Emperor Malik Amber in the 15th century. This fort was initially built up by a fisherman of Murud in order to protect the town from pirates of the sea. The splendid architecture of a Lion which is cornered by 6 elephants is the main attraction of the fort. The sweet water lake situated in the vicinity of the fort is a natural lake and exists since the fort was built.
