Considering the fact that this is a palace (mahal), its location is a bit surprising. As you wind your way up a narrow stretch of lane dotted with houses and shops, there is a sharp turn to the left which indicates the location of the palace. But once inside, there is ample space for parking a vehicle. The Italian Gothic... More

It is the palace of maharja of kutch state. The British Era palace built in European style situated in bhuj, the heart of kutch. Located before Aaina Mahal in the same compound. Prag Mahal is a splendid palace made of Italian marble and sandstone. Prag Mahal leaves a spell bound impression to us with its structure, especially Corinthian pillars and... More

On it's first look it is well understood that it is one of the other remnants which came out of the British Raj , the palace has been constructed in Italian architecture and its outlook is still appealing . The watch tower view are also good to have and the most intriguing thing to me was the display of the... More

Parag mahal palace is one of the historic landmarks of Bhuj and houses the royalty. While from outside does not look impressive, the inside. The palace does show some glimpses of royalty. Some of the rooms remain closed for visitors. Limited access is now available for tourists with not much explanation. Most boards are in Gujarat. Obviously the place has... More

Many parts of the palace was damaged during the earthquake of 2001. The parts of the palace opened to visitors is very small and does not display quality stuff. This place can be visited only if you have nothing else to do. There are better palaces and forts in Rajasthan

Pragmahal is just 800 mtrs from the bus station (walkable). One can visit in the morning (9-12pm) and evening (3-5:30pm). Afternoon closed. The palace of the king shown in the movie "LAGAAN" is this only. Although one can not recognize the all the shooting places except a few (only the photos on the wall can give some ideas). Rs.30/- ticket... More

This palace highlights the Kutch culture and Kutch kingdom / kings who ruled this land. However, maintenance is a bit on the lower side. The highlight is the clock tower ( similiar to the Rajabhai clock tower Mumbai , only 2 to have ever been made in erstwhile Pre Independence India) . You can climb up the clock tower for... More
