Among other places to pay visit, Aina Mahal should not be missed out while touring BHUJ!
The palace remains closed from 12 to 3pm for lunch. A visiting fee of 30rs is required.
The palace from the outside does not represent any kind of grandeur,which efficiently conceals the exquisite beauty that lies inside. Built during Lakhpatji's reign, the master was specially commissioned to design this palace, which owed all its materials to have been developed in the Indian soil.
On entry one will be treated with a visual sight of a huge chariot on display, a 14 feet long painting on a single canvas, a weighing machine of those times, among other crafts.
Proceeding to the main area or darbar, its magnificence on display! Hanging candle chandeliers, an ivory throne on an elevated platform, a dented space surrounding it which is supposed to be filled with water to keep the place cool. On special occasions, the chandeliers are filled with colored water bringing the darbar alive.
