Pragmahal Palace, Bhuj

3.3
#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Bhuj
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. By using our Bhuj trip builder, you can arrange your visit to Pragmahal Palace and other attractions in Bhuj.

    This palace is mesmerizing. Artifacts from king's era have been preserved and kept for show. People with historic love should definately visit.

    A purely historic place with ₹30 per head. The wonderful giant hall is something that cannot be missed. We can say that only 40% of the palace is made available for public to watch, which is very less. But the tower is worth a shot, which gives the amazing view of the city from the top. Situated nearby is Aina Mahal Palace, where you again have to pay same amount for entry. It's a palace of mirrors. And the logic behind having a palace full of mirrors is mind blowing. You'll have to visit to know why.

    First of all palace is our precious thing we have to maintain it we need to Clean it everyday. But if we are talking about paragmahal it's too dirty not clean at all. I love to visit palace and all historical monument but this one I shouldn't prefer at all.

    Actually the palace is under construction for now & then only 10% is available for people to have eyes on something that's termed "ROYAL" better avoid it for atleast a year

    Historic place. Conservation and display of artifacts is just above average. Can do better with proper display and conservation.
