  • Not far from the Kutch Museum in the Centre of Bhuj, situated on a low hillocks, is the Bhuj Chattardi, former cremation site of the dynasty of rulers of that place in times past. It wasn't the best time when we arrived as the Sun slightly darkened view high and made the environment "from hell" from the heat of the period. Even the shadow of those few domes left standing after the devastating earthquake could offer shelter, and in all of them there was the danger of collapse, so at your own risk, although some reinforcement was done. No one else was around, so we could move freely without having to provide us with continuous selfie required by other local visitors, making us waste time and in order to live in the moment of the trip. It was supposed to be a site with many cenotaphs, richly adorned with decorations and statues: many of these were scattered everywhere; on the ground and those few still standing or imprinted in the columns were beautifully crafted and still in good condition. After a slalom of half an hour between those ruins, passed in the company from just "noise" of cicadas, we picked up the car with regret not having been able to exploit the place the most favorable time for photos, at sunset.

  • These are beautiful cenotaphs in dilapidated condition. They are basically Tombstone/Samaadhi sthal of the royalty, belonging to the Jadeja rulers. The entrance is so narrow that one can easily miss it. (We had to ask a local for the entrance!!) But the expanse of the garden, where the cenotaphs are situated, is quite large. One can spend some 20-25 minutes visiting this place, which is located in the vicinity of the Swaminarayan Temple. Though the cenotaphs were badly destroyed during the 2001 earthquake, it still is a photographer’s delight. The entry is free, but visit before sunset to get the best light for photography.
  • Historical place surrounding a awesome garden.
  • Heritage site. The place where Salman Khan & Aishwarya Rai's scene from Ham Dil De Chuke Sanam movie was captured. A well developed grass garden located along with a walk way around the place. Worth to visit for tourist & citizens for refreshment.
  • Awesome place..... historical stone... beautiful gardan....
  • Best place to seat with friends
