Huzoor Palace was built by the Maharaja of Porbander before Independence. The palace is presently not open to the public. However from what one can see from outside it is a beautiful old colonial style building and gives some good backdrops for photographs especially when the setting sun rays fall on the building.

This is stilla private property so you can just view the outer structure of the palace and its grounds. Especially the view from the Chowpaty beach side is beautiful. And during sunset with the dusk light falling on the mahal , you can get some very good photos. Apart from that nothing much you can do here

Huzoor Palace is also known as Rajmahal in Porbandar. The Palace was built by Natwar Shah in Europian style and in zigzag formation.. A huge Palace faces to Arabian Sea and surrounded by gardens and fountain. A nice visit.

The Grand Huzoor Palace is the soul of Porbandar State. It sits at the first site of land as you enter Porbandar from the sea. The palace is beautifully designed and has more about 350 rooms, each with its own personality. It is truly a masterpiece ahead of its time. However, the Palace and palace grounds are off limits, you... More
