Lakhota Talav, Jamnagar

3.8
#2 of 6 in Nature in Jamnagar
This small palace, on an island in the middle of the Lakhota lake, once belonged to the Maharaja of Nawanagar. This fort-like palace has semi-circular bastions, turrets, a pavilion with guard-rooms housing swords, powder flasks and musket loops. An arched stone bridge with balustrade connects the Lakhota Palace with the town. Today it houses a small museum. The fort museum has a good collection of sculptures that spans a period from the 9th to the 18th century and pottery found in ruined medieval villages from the surrounding area. The museum is reached by a short causeway from the northern side of Ranmal Lake and is open daily except on Wednesdays.

Where to stay in Jamnagar

Jamnagar's reputation as an oil hub has overshadowed its tourism potential, so the city receives few tourists and doesn't offer a particularly broad selection of accommodations. Those on offer--primarily mid-range to luxurious hotels--lie in a few clusters, one just north of the lake, and the other farther north in the district of Vijay Nagar Society. A handful of very basic options can be found scattered around the city center.
