Morbi to Jamnagar
After breakfast, we take a drive for Jamnagar.
In Jamnagar we start from visiting with the Darbargadh Palace. Darbargadh (Maharajah's palace), it is an old royal residence and one of the most important historical monuments in Jamnagar, reflects a fusion of Rajputs swith European style of architecture. The outside walls have carved balconies called jarokha in the Indian culture, also a carved gate with Venetian-Gothic arches.
Lakhota Fort is a small palace, situated on an island in middle of the lake Lakhota, which once belonged to Nawanagars Maharaja. This palace has semi-circular bastions, a pavilion with guard-rooms housing swords, turrets, musket loops and powder flasks. An arched stone bridge with a balustrade on sides connects the Lakhota Palace with town. Today it is a small museum. The museum has good collection of sculptures spanning from the 9th to 18th century.
Pratap Vilas Palace is a quite distinct place for you to visit for a numerous reason. It has a European architecture along with Indian carvings which gives it a different appeal. It was built as mimic of the Victoria Memorial situated in Calcutta but domes built on it have Indian architecture, out of which 3 domes are made of glass. Carvings of flowers,creepers, leaves,animals and birds on columns make the palace more lively.
