What you will do:

Begin your day with a pick-up from your hotel for a full city tour of Bhuj, a place steeped in history and culture.

Aaina Mahal Palace:
Your first stop is the Aaina Mahal Palace, a magnificent structure built during the rule of Lakhpatji in the 18th century. Despite suffering damage in the 2001 earthquake, this palace has been carefully restored. Explore the resplendent interiors with their antique clocks, exotic tile works, and glittering glasses. Don't forget to wander the palace compound, adorned with intricately carved doorways, ornate window boxes, and charming balconies.

Prag Mahal:
Next, visit the Prag Mahal, an architectural wonder built in the 19th century near Aina Mahal. Admire its Gothic-style windows, Corinthian pillars, and the country's second tallest clock tower, which offers breathtaking panoramic views from the top. Part of the palace has been transformed into a museum, displaying archives and personal belongings of the royal family. This opulent palace, primarily constructed from red sandstone, boasts remarkable wall carvings and exquisite jaali work on the jharokhas.

Shri Swaminarayan Temple:
Explore the Shri Swaminarayan Temple, originally built in 1822. This temple, near Hamirsar Lake, is a pristine example of architectural excellence, constructed entirely from marble. Its all-white structure and intricate design make it a stunning place to visit.

Ramkund:
Visit Ramkund, a square stepwell with carved miniature idols depicting the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu and sculptures of Lord Rama, Devi Sita, Lord Lakshmana, and Lord Hanuman. The stepwell's geometric architecture showcases the craftsmanship of the time. As you descend its steps, you'll feel a refreshing coolness that contrasts with the heat above. Ramkund is a fascinating historical site located near the Kutch Museum and behind the Ram Dhun Temple.

After a day filled with heritage and culture, your tour will conclude with a drop-off back at your hotel.
