About Prag Mahal Palace, Bhuj

Located close to Aina Mahal, this 19th century palace do deserves a visit because of its unique architectural design. History says, that the palace was named after Rao Pragmaji I, who commissioned the construction of this palace in the year 1865. From the outside appearance, the palace looks slightly out of the place. But it’s Italian Gothic architectural style still manages to grab eyeballs of the visitors who come to visit Aina Mahal.

Step inside the courtyard and you will come across a small Hindu temple. The interior of the palace starts with a Durbar Hall that is filled with antique wall hangings, paintings, furniture and chandeliers. The entire hall has a very classy look. Move inside and you will come across many rooms stuffed with more antique pieces. The primary highlight of the palace is the Bell tower. Climb up the spiral staircase of the bell tower to reach the top floor. From this floor, you can enjoy a beautiful scenic view of the entire Bhuj city.

Though the palace has faced few damages during Gujarat earthquake, its ancient beauty is simple un-ignorable.

Prag Mahal Palace, Bhuj Reviews

  • This palace has main two attractions. 1. Very huge size of mirror, from that you can see complete room. 2. Terrace of clock tower from where you can see bhuj. Palace out design is quite attractive. Just remember if you want to click photos inside you need to purchase ticket for photography. You can see complete palace within half an hour. Nothing much too see inside, except old designed sofa, dinning table, old big vessel, few animals decoration on wall and around, and of course mirror.

  • Well maintained place of historical architecture. It feels nice to see a well maintained remnant of Gothic architecture in a small town like Bhuj. Entry fees are nominal. My only suggestion would be to use original lighting if possible in the dark areas to get the actual feel

  • The palace is good, much bigger than the Ariana mahal. Has a good view of the city from one of the towers even the farther bhujia hills can be seen, but the maintenance is not that good. Also the sandy dust kind of outside pavements/roads is another thing which makes the place too dusty when a lot of people visit the place at a time. The palace is having a history which is most recent (like around a 100 years) describes the people and their living style through photos and the things that they used. Even few of films with history in their story have filmed in here. The management/authority should take the maintenance seriously.

  • Historic Place. Formerly Rulers of Kutch lived here. Awesome experience. Also museum sutuated here. Which contains historic collections.

  • Well the palace is quite good but not that big or grand. Can get crowdy at times and also the staff is not so attentive. Still it's well preserved and had great vintage stuffs for us to see. If you are in Bhuj don't miss it.
