This is under major renovation and nothing to see at all. And from whats happening looked like it may take a few months, so please do check with your hotels before you venture out. Hopefully next time I visit it will be in good shape.

Heritage Fort of Jamnagar built by Jam Ranjitsinh. Fort located in middle of the city and middle of the lakhota lake. Great experience to visit with my beautiful daughter.

This place requires immediate attention of authorities before it crumbles down to rubbles in some or the other storm. There are some fine pieces of history... More

On an Island in the center of the lake stands the circular Lakhota tower, built for as a moat, the tower known as Lakhota Palace now houses the Lakhota Museum. The Historical & Archaeological information, is the guardroom with muskets, & private luxury coaches connect JAMNAGAR with various centers of Gujarat.
