Located on the outskirts of the ethnic town of Bhuj, Prag Mahal is one of the architectural wonders in India. Built in the 19th century, it is established next to the popular Aina Mahal and lies in the heart of the city making it easily accessible. The grand palace boasts of Gothic style windows and Corinthian pillars around it. The foundation of this historic monument can be traced back to the time after the Britishers visited India and spread their influence all over to Bhuj. Imposing and beautiful in itself, the resplendent palace is made mostly out of red sandstone. There are intricate carvings done on the walls with beautiful art, and the most amazing thing is the jaali work on the jharokhas, those are exquisite in appearance.
The Prag Mahal was designed by Colonel Henry Saint Wilkins and was commissioned by the then ruler, Pragmali II. It was a joint contribution of the Indian artisans as well as the foreign workers. The opulent Mahal has the second tallest clock tower in the country which offers an amazing view from the top. A part of the palace has been converted into a museum with archives and personal items of the royal family on display. Prag Mahal has also been very famous in Bollywood and has been a part of several Bollywood blockbusters including Lagaan, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, and numerous Gujarati films as well.
