Where to stay in Junagadh

The accommodations of Junagadh cover a fairly mixed range, as with many of India's other pilgrimage destinations. Still not a huge draw for international tourists, Junagadh somewhat lacks (perhaps, thankfully) high-rise hotels and resorts, although a few options stand throughout the city center. Simple hotels and guesthouses remain the norm in this historic town; most are newly built, but some particularly characterful family-run options lie tucked away on the city's side streets.
