Prag Mahal Palace, Bhuj, Gujarat

The 19th-century Prag Mahal, the largest of the three palaces within the Darbargadh walled complex, is in a sorry state after being damaged by an earthquake, but it's worth seeing for its grand Durbar Hall, which features glistening chandeliers, the Maharajah's taxidermied collection, and gold-skirted classical statues. Witness firsthand the extravagance and style of Maharajah life as you take a stroll through these palatial halls. Several portions from the critically acclaimed Bollywood cricket blockbuster Lagaan were shot here.

The palace's first bricks were placed in 1865, and it was named after Rao Pragmalji II, who commissioned its construction. Colonel Henry Saint Wilkins designed it in the Italian Gothic style. His squad was made up of a number of Italian artists who were compensated with gold coins. The total cost of the project was 3.1 million rupees, and the palace was completed in 1879. Following Pragmalji II's death in 1875, the regency was transferred to Khengarji III (Pragmalji II's son).

The majestic durbar hall, with its classic statues and chandeliers, is the centrepiece of the Prag Mahal, which is created entirely of Italian marble and sandstone. This magnificent property boasts a clock tower with a panoramic view of Bhuj from the top. The Prag Mahal is home to India's second-highest clock tower. A section of the palace has been transformed into a museum, which houses various royal family relics and personal collections. A section of the Prag Mahal was destroyed by the earthquake in 2010, and it has been under reconstruction for quite some time.
