Prag Mahal in Kutch

Bhuj is set in a desert, a land so arid that there is no respite from the sun. Yet the colour of the people and their culture shines forth in many ways. The history of the land is also rife with stories of people wanting to add to the rich heritage. One such mark on the history of Bhuj is the Prag Mahal.

Legacies of a Raja

Built in the nineteenth century, the Prag Mahal is situated adjacent to the Aina Mahal, another landmark of the city. The mahal is named after Rao Pragmalji, the second. He was the ruler of the Princely State of Kutch from 1860 to 1975. He was one of the progressive rulers of the region and was responsible for implementing the system of state funded education.

Rao Pragmalji, the second, commissioned the Prag Mahal in 1865. The Mahal was designed by Colonel Henry Saint Wilkins and was constructed by the mistris of Kutch and Italian artisans.

A Gothic structure….

The mahal is built in an Italian Gothic style and, even today, seems very out of place among the traditional buildings surrounding it.  The mahal is constructed entirely out of sandstone from Rajasthan and Italian marble. The fine jail work on the wall depicts European plants and animals. The chandeliers, the statues carved in classical styles and the taxidermy animals on the walls all speak of the bygone era.

… Set in Indian Settings!

Even though all European in its style, there are still Indian touches in the Mahal. The temple in its courtyard, made of marble carved with traditional motifs, is the best piece of it all. The Prag mahal also has a clock tower, which is 45-foot-tall, and accords some of the best views of the town. Rao Pragmalji, the second, did not live to see his dream being completed. His son, Khengarji, the third, completed the Prag Mahal.

Bringing back the glory

Successive earthquakes in the area have left cracks in the walls of the palace. It was lying forgotten until Amitabh Bachchan, the actor, took an avid interest in restoring the palace. The clock tower has been restored and work is on, on the other parts of the mahal.

Bollywood has used the Prag Mahal as a setting for many of its movies. Parts of the famous movies such as Hum Dil de Chuke Sanam and Lagaan, among others were filmed here.

    Vidya's 5 days trip to Kutch

    It was a fantastic experience to see all the tourist attractions in Ahmedabad , pilgrimage centers of Dwarka and Somnath , Devaliya Park Safari in Gir. Our Driver Mr. Kan Singh was very helpful and resourceful. He took us to all the places as per our wish and helped us in covering all the attractio
    ns we had planned to visit. He also helped us in tasting variety of Gujarat cuisines / Thali / namkeens / sweets , by identifying the right restaurants enroute. Hotels were good . We especially liked "Lords Inn" in Somnath and they had good standards for Quality and hygiene. Room size was big . They even packed us complete breakfast and juice at 6:30am , as we had an early morning Safari by 8:00am at Gir. Grand Dwarka was not maintained well. AC's were not working and hence the floor was all wet/ humid. I didn't feel the 3 Star standard or quality in that Hotel. Nevertheless it was closeby to Dwarkadheesh Temple ( walkable distance).

    Raosureshs's 8 days trip to Kutch

    It was a good experience. However there was too much travel on road. Out of 8 days, 2 full days were spent traveling. It was quite tiring. Better planning of longer stay in hotels rather than checking out within 1 or 2 days would have helped. There was hardly any time spent in the resort. Gir Jung
    le safari and stay in Tent City Narmada was awesome. Great experience.

    Is Gujarat safe to visit for solo travellers?

    Ahmedabad is considered one of the safest city in India, especially for solo travellers. The Gujaratis are very warm and welcoming people. However, it is best to take care of yourself like in any other place during travel and keep your luggage safe at all times.

    Can I drink alcohol in Gujarat?

    Gujarat is renowned for being a dry state, meaning alcohol is banned in the state. It is not advised for travellers to purchase liquor illegally in Gujarat. However, there are some designated high-end hotels that sell alcohol to permit holders. A permit can be acquired from the officials by showing a valid identity proof. Non-Indians can also purchase a 30-day permit to buy alcohol in Gujarat.
