New Lakhota is amazing

It gives us experience of relaxation as the surrounding has been reconstructed. There is also Laser show, aquarium and museum inside it. I just love the laser show have never seen anything like this before. It's really 3D laser show. The laser show is really a modern marvel.

A much better renewed Fort after renovation

Lakhota Fort is spotted at central part of Jamnagar City. The fort is placed at center of well known Lakhota Talav. Lakhota Talav is a well known place for fairs and cultural events. During the year many Folk songs nights, Dandiya nights and Rock events are organized by Jamnagar Municipal Corporation. So Lakhota Fort is now known as the symbol of these events and it shows the importance and prosperity of the place. The fort having some ancient coins, guns, canons, dresses, swords, knives and so more - these things are a great part of collection of maharaja JAM RANJEET SINGH. A statue of maharaja JAM SAHIB riding over 3 legged horse is placed beside Lakhota Fort creates some forced perspective.

Beautiful place surrounded with many good sights

I had visited Jamnagar before 4 months, seen the place famously known as Lakhota Lake. It is really a beautiful place, many species of birds found there, and we had visited the museum which is situated between lake. There is one temple of Hanuman which is famously known as Bal Hanuman.
