Bhuj In Gujarat

Bhuj, the westernmost city of India, is a treasure trove of heritage and culture. Like few other cities, which have escaped the tourist invasion in India, Bhuj proposes to the traveller hospitality previously hidden in modern times. Bhuj is known for its small, meandering streets, castles and temples. It also has the earliest art gallery in a state of Gujarat. It not only has numerous places of interest within the town, but locations (especially villages) around it are very popular for their traditional handicrafts and embroidery.


Bhuj is known for its castles, integrated the standard Kutchi design. Aina Mahal or the Palace of Mirrors (Old Palace), enclosed by a little, fortified courtyard built in the 18th century, is situated in the old part of the city. It is an important tourist spot and houses a museum within it. The Hall of Mirrors and the Pleasure Pool within this palace are essential. Near the Aina Mahal, there is the Prag Mahal (New Palace), which was integrated the latter half of the 19th century.

Bhuj is known for its Rann Utsav (festival), which is organized every year in February/March. Also known as the Wasteland Event, it usually correlates with the Hindu festival of Shivratri. The main attractions of this festival are the business presentation of conventional handcraft, social activities and trips in and around the town.
