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.

Great place but in shambles. Wonder when such exquisite places will be restored. Unrestricted cattle just outside which refuse to move out is the first sight on reaching the place. The buildings the Windows, the tower, the roof, are superb. The inner court hall is beautiful.
It’s a wonderful place in midst of busy town. Though parking facilities are very much poor but it’s worth visiting place. Those who wants to know about Kutch kingdom will surely learn lot many things. They have preserved thousands of things that earlier kings were using. It’s very crowded all the time but worth spending an hour.
Typical and gothical architectural place with a clock tower (Big Ben). Be aware of closing time of 6 PM before visiting!
Not maintained properly. There are cracks all around the building post Bhuj earthquake. Must be looked after as it is a heritage site.
The articles r good. But not kept clean. The place and articles kept in dust. Lot of dust
