Prag Mahal

Palace in Bhuj

The largest of the three palaces within the Darbargadh walled complex, 19th-century Prag Mahal is in a forlorn state, damaged by an earthquake, but is worth visiting for its ghostly, exuberant Durbar Hall, with its vast chandeliers, the Maharajah's taxidermied contribution to the demise of India's wildlife, and gold-skirted classical statues that wouldn’t look out of place decorating a gay nightclub. Several scenes from Lagaan, the much-acclaimed Bollywood cricket blockbuster, were filmed here.
