The magnificent Prag Mahal, in Bhuj is a perfect exemplar of French architecture. The palace stands still in the same compound where the famous Aina Mahal is located. The place was commissioned by King Pragmalji in the 1860s and was designed by Colonel Henry Saint Wilkins. The Mahal’s Italian Gothic architecture is what leaves the viewers in awe. Even though there are traces of Indian craftsmanship in its making, the palace has a fine juxtaposition of western and cultural views.
The palace contains a main hall and a 45m bell tower for an exotic city view. Even though one can see cracks in the walls, considering nature’s harshness over the years, the palace still holds an important place in the Indian history. Behind the palace, in the courtyard is a small temple containing intricate stonework.
