  • It is a worth watch historical place. Even though earthquake of 2001 in kutch led to minor damage to the building but it has been refurbished by the govt. Beautifully carved ivory doors and the fountains, mirror mirror and mirrors where ever you see.. Everything is so beautifully designed that one should at least see it once. And the entry fee is just rs 20 which is affordable
  • The fees you pay for yourself and camera are worth it. You find ancient culture of India, coins, arrow, bow, swords, antique weather clock etc, you have guides (,no charge) around who explain you in detail sboyt the grand history of place. Take good time to visit, atleast 2hours. It closes evening six pm so ensure your timing accordingly
  • રાજાશાહી સમયના કાચ ઉપરના રંગીન પેઇન્ટીંગ્સ ખુબજ સરસ અને આકર્ષક છે. બાજીરાવ ની મસ્તાની જે એક નૃત્યાંગના હતી, તે પણ આ આઇના મહેલમાં તેના નૃત્ય દ્રારા આકર્ષણનુ સ્થાન બનતી. અહીં મસ્તાનીબાઇનાં કાચ ઉપર બનાવેલ ચીત્ર હજુ પણ તે સમયની સાક્ષી કરાવે છે. Wonderful Place of King for Enjoyment, There are so many Paintings of Glass, some of them are of Mastani of King Bajirao. King Bajirao's Mastanibai who was knkwn for her beauty and dancing style had also performed in this Palace for King of Kutch. There are also different types of Weapons which were used by army of Kutch.
  • The palace is good, but the maintenance is not that good. Also the sandy dust kind of outside pavements/roads is another thing which makes the place too dusty when a lot of people visit the place at a time. The palace is having a history which is most recent (like around a 100 years) describes the people and their living style through photos and the things that they used. Even few of films with history in their story have filmed in here. The management/authority should take the maintenance seriously.
  • Very nice a historic place. It could be even better if there were guides there. Has a lot of details and a reason for everything. Very beautiful place.
