Aina Mahal - Review

Located at the northeast corner of Hamirsar lake, this 18th century Aina Mahal palace or “Hall of Mirrors” is a perfect treat for the travelers coming to Bhuj. Built by Rao Lakhpatjiin 1761 and designed by Ram Singh Malam, its mind-blowing architectural design will put you in awe of its beauty.

As you step inside, you will be awestruck to see the fine craftwork done with marble and glasses. The entire interior wall is covered with marble stone, adorned with gold lace and glass. The most striking feature of the palace is the shades of Venetian glass that separates mirror covered marble walls from the glided ornaments. However, the palace did face a damage during 2001 Gujarat earthquake. But the natural calamity was unable to cause much ruin to this palace. And at present, the damaged portions are already being repaired.

If you love ancient architecture, then make sure you visit this palace that represent itself as one of the ideal example of Indo-European architectural design.

  • The Mahal is very nice and sculpture is also very good but at the result of earthquake the Mahal is quite crack but the inner side is well and the mirror and the glass well and looking very well.

  • Beautiful place. Look very nice after earth quake. Some parts are demag but still look very nice.

  • Few vintage items kept for display. Nice glass work done inside the mahal. Children get board. closed between 1300 to 1500

  • Great palace to be there, to know about Kutch. History is beautifully displayed, About #Aina Mahal :- The #Mahal is an 18th-century #palace located in #Bhuj was built by #Rao #Lakhpat Ji in 1761. It was made under observation of #RamSangh #Malam. It's walls constructed from Marble and covered with mirrors to reflect #candle lights to increase light in #Mahel. Guides are there but you have to ask them to speak about it. Else none of them will not explain. Or take your own external guide. (-1 🌟 for this) Special Note :- don't hesitate in paying Camera Fees. Good place for Photography too...

  • Beautiful place, but not well maintained. There are aspects of the Mahal - especially the exquisite mirror work that are quite breathtaking. But as a whole, not a great experience.
