The Prag Mahal Overview

Ranked 6 of 15 sightseeing in Kutch

The Prag Mahal is another prominent sightseeing destination of Kutch and is located next to the Aina Mahal. This fort was built in the 19th century and was commissioned by Rao Pragmalji II. Its Italian-Gothic architecture style was presented by Colonel Henry Saint Wilkins. The wages of the artisans of this palace were paid in gold coins.

The main features of this palace includes its main hall, which is filled with decaying taxidermy followed by its Durbar Hall, which comprises ancient and broken chandeliers along with classical statues.

Its Corinthian pillars, Jali work and a small Hindu temple in its courtyard are also quite popular. However, the 2001 Gujarat earthquake damaged this fort heavily and now, only the main hall and bell towers remain in good condition.

Neat place with a clock tower

Prag Mahal is in the city of Bhuj and beside Aina Mahal. It has an entry fee of 20/- per adult and 50/- per camera. Need to take off shoes/sandal to enter. The place is neat and cool inside. The Mahal has a big hall which is very nice. And, there are other small rooms with period items. It also has a clock tower and we are allowed to climb up to the top. The top gives us a view of the City and the nearby Lake Hamirsar. Lots of visitors visit this place.
