Murud is a small fishing hamlet lying in Raigad district, 165 km away from Mumbai on the lush green western coast of Maharashtra. Janjira is just 5 km south of Murud. Murud was at one time the capital of the former state of Janjira. Both of these are worth visiting for a full day excursion. The trip to Murud is incomplete without a visit to the beautiful Murud beach, Janjira Fort on the sea and Palace of the Nawab. Murud, with its picturesque greenish beauty, is still a remote and tranquil area. Janjira is the Marathi corruption of the Arabic word of Zizera, which means island. Murud and its areas were once called Janjira, the name truly referred to the mighty island fortress in the sea.
