The Unconquered fort - Janjira Fort
Kalalbangdi - is made out of bangles.. thats why it is named as kalalbangdi. they even had a secret tunnel inside the fort through the sea to one of his palace situated in murud. but when the enemy conquered the palace the king decided to blow his own palace and close the tunnel.. it is said that the tunnel was so big that king use to come riding on their horses. but its not a easy way in or out.. it was like a puzzle and only few trusted men knew the way in and out. this tunnel was basically made to make easy transport of stock and daily use iteams. archaeologist tried to study the tunnel but it was very difficult for them due to lack of oxygen inside the tunnel like all our fort this fort has a chor darwaza too which is too small even to notice. but i guess they never used the chor darwaza. because till date this fort is UNCONQUERABLE. i think after reading this you might be curious to go and visit or revisit the fort.. there are two ways to go to murud 1. take sion - panvel highway and then from Roha ghats - (beautiful ghats / forest - suggestion travel during day time.. you will love the view and vastness) or 2. this shortcut route.. roads are not that great.. no street lights, but its a short cut :-P GPS for the same.....
