Welcome to Bhuj
Bhuj is also an ideal springboard for visits to the surrounding villages and to places of superb natural beauty in the Great Rann, and textile tourism is attracting visitors from around the world.
The Jadeja Rajputs who took control of Kachchh in 1510 made Bhuj their capital 29 years later, and it has remained Kachchh’s most important town ever since (it's still the region's capital). In 2001 a massive earthquake left Bhuj almost completely destroyed. Today the city has been largely rebuilt, though it lost much of its historic architecture and some of the palaces retain the scars of that fateful day.
