Admire the fine masonry, Venetian arches, and rose-colored stone of Pragmahal Palace, an Italian Gothic-style palace in the middle of Bhuj. Designed by a British colonel in the 1860s, the complex was commissioned by King Pragmalji. See if you can spot Indian architectural elements in this Victorian structure, then head toward the small Hindu temple in the yard behind the palace. Have a chat to one of the caretakers, who will be happy to assist with more information. Climb the 45 m (148 ft) tall bell tower with a clock to get sweeping views of the city.

  • This is a very small palace. It was built by the king and the architect was a European (french or british) and hence the architecture is of that region. Climb up to the clock tower for good views.  more »

  • Great palace with a glorious history. Beautifully built and maintained. I can make anyone wonder how they made such a timeless architecture at that time. Mostly crowded on weekends and timings are also strict. One should definitely bring their younger Tod's and let them Know the glory of such kingdoms. Felt proud being here.
  • Very well maintained and in very good condition. Atmosphere is superb and one can easily look into our past how our kings were living and how are they spend there time. There is lunch time from 12.30 to 3.00 which should be removed. Rest is best
