About Bhuj Chattardi in Kutch
Bhuj, the capital of Kutch District, has an ancient past. It has been the capital for the Maharaos of the princely state of Kutch for many centuries. Monuments found around the town bear testament to the era gone by.
A Cenotaph’s complex
The cenotaph’s complex is an interesting place. The complex is a set of monuments erected over the tombs of previous rulers. Each of these monuments has a chattaradi or an umbrella carved out of red sandstone set atop of it, meant to protect the deceased from the elements. The finest one is the tomb of Rao Lakha built in 1770 AD. It is elaborate polygonal structure with balconies and a roof carved with beautiful designs.
Beauty carved in stone
There are also tombs of other rulers Rao Desai, Rao Rayashan and Rao Pragmal, among others. The complex has many other features too; Like statues of soldiers guarding the complex, statues of entertainers and the grounds in between each tomb where the evidence of garden still remains.
Restoring that the earth destroyed
Most of the chattaradis were destroyed by the Gujarat earthquake. Most of them lie broken and in despair. The Archaeological Survey of India has undertaken the repair of the complex and has managed to piece together two chattaradis.
A visit to this complex will give the visitor an insight into the royal way of life of the Rulers of the Princely State of Kutch.
