In & Around

Aaina Mahal - 6 KM

The Aaina Mahal palace, or 'Hall of Mirrors' was built during the flamboyant rule of Lakhpatji in the middle of the 18th century. The responsibility of engineering, architecture, and embellishment was entitled to Ram Singh Malam - a genius of an artist who took his training in Europe for 17 years but came back to India seeking name and fame. He was asked by the king to create this palace of dreams for him, and thus the Aaina Mahal came into existence. However, what once stood proudly with glittering glasses, antique clocks and exotic tile works was shaken and disheveled in the 2001 earthquake that hit Bhuj. The Aaina Mahal is at the northeast corner of Hamirsar lake, easily walkable from most of Bhuj.

Parag Mahal - 6 KM

Located on the outskirts of the ethnic town of Bhuj, Parag Mahal is one of the architectural wonders in India. Built-in the 19th century, it is established next to the popular Aaina Mahal and lies in the heart of the city making it easily accessible. The grand palace boasts of Gothic-style windows and Corinthian pillars around it. The opulent Mahal has the second tallest clock tower in the country which offers an amazing view from the top.
