  • A must see historical place to see in bhuj. A must see place for photographers to shoot some pictures of ancient architectural bulidings.
  • Aaina mahal has a very valuable things to see
  • It was one of the most absurd museum cum palace I've ever seen. There were random pictures of dogs and royal families that weren't even related to the museum. It was nice to see the King's room but that was about it. Other than that, you can pretty much skip visiting this place.
  • It is Historical palace where last king maharao madansinhji lived there.
