About Bhuj

Bhuj city was founded in 1510 by the local ruler Maharao Hamir. During the reign of Rao Khengarji I Bhuj was made capital of the prosperous princely state of Kutch, whose wealth was derived from its sea trade. Bhuj remained an independent princely state also during the British rule. In 1947 when India got independence Bhuj became part of India. This was a fascinating walled city, with beautiful palaces, havelis and market famous for its rich handicrafts and jewellery until the earthquake of 2001 which reduced much of Bhuj to rubble. But now some of cities building have been restored and efforts are on to bring the city back to its earlier developed stage.

Darbargadh Palaces

s The Darbargadh palace complex was begun by the princes of Kutch in 1548 and was added to over several centuries. It reflects the artistic and cultural development of the city. The royal chambers of this complex have beautiful designs contrasting with European style in the exterior of the palace. The last palace built here in 1868 is Prag Mahal, in red sandstone and white marble under the direction of British architects. It’s worth visiting for its ghostly Durbar Hall. The oldest portions of the Darbargadh palace were vacated in the nineteenth century and following independence, the palace complex became a privately owned museum. It also houses Aina Mahal. After the earthquake that struck in 2001, which destroyed the complex, it has been restored by The Indian National Trust for Arts and Cultural Heritage (INTACH).
