It's located in the middle of the busiest market of Bhuj, with narrow roads to reach this palace. It's enclosed within a wall encompassing it. Ticket price is not worth what's maintained. Its European structure with tower clock, which is indeed not functional. Some rooms in the palace are well maintained while others are covered in dust. Houses lots of... More

The 19th century palace which could withstand the earthquake is very much ignored by government and maharaja himself, You have to roam inside on your own as there is no one to guide you. Only one lady who was one of the care takers of the palace, told us little bit about the palace. other men there were useless

Prag mahal palace has nice architecture. Visit to this palace includes visit to Aina mahal and the clock tower. Impressive structure. The Darbar-hall (Town-hall) is impressive. Some of the collections of the raja are kept for visitors. Photography charges are too steep. Clean place.

Old palace is made up of stones and have a lot of stories to tell of maharaja who used to stay there. Treat for history lovers. Maintenance is required.

This place is poorly maintained even though it has some valuable stuff collection. The belongings, cupboards, artefacts which belonged to maharaja of kutch are in very bad condition. The skin of stuffed animals are peeling off. This place is also damaged during Bhuj earthquake however it was not at all restored even though its a tourist place. Overall you can... More

Must have been a beautiful place once... Now shattered by the 2002 earthquake and lack of funds. Such a pity! The exteriors are beautiful & well maintained but the interiors are a little sad. High bell tower with narrow steps leading up. Can cause a jam if there is two way traffic

The palace is breathtakingly beautiful and you will surely be reminded of Hum dil de chuke sanam and Lagaan. The view from the terrace is spectacular.

At first glance this building could be standing in an Italian Piazza. Made of local red stone a mixture of dragons, apsaras, jackals,acanthus leaves & snakes decorating pillars. One dragon standing out over the front entrance resembles a medieval gargoyle. Inside a hotch-potch of stuff-it could be the contents of an auctioneer's showroom. The earthquake damaged Durbar Hall has been... More
