Castle Architectural Building
Explore luxurious sandstone pavilions and dip into the water of a royal beach at Vijay Vilas Palace, a huge Indo-European style complex serving as the former summer palace of the rulers of Kutch. Spanning 182 ha (450 ac), the sea-beach resort features exquisite late colonial architecture and a privately owned beach. Built between 1920 and 1929, the complex was designed as a royal guest camp, with tent accommodation on the beach. Admire the palace's elaborate, British-style wooden furniture and European interiors as you explore. The golden-sand beach offers a thatched restaurant with sweeping views of the ocean and a volleyball court. You can also arrange camel rides along the beach and boat tours.

  • Good palace where few film shooting also done . Nice location
  • nothing much to explore here but good to visit if you have time to understand ancient culture and monuments
  • Quite amazing palace with nostalgic feeling. I strongly recommend all people travelling to kutch for any reason, just be here for once. Main palace is at ground floor with major rooms for guest, meeting and dining. While roof has two section, one with open area and one at higher level from where you can view sea beach and lush green grounds surrounding the palace.
  • A palace was in many movies and visiting a place will make you happy.. nice place for photography. .
