It used to be the summer palace of Jajeja Royal family of Kutchh, construction was started in 1920, completed in 1929. It is built with Red stone in Rajputana architecture.The Royal family still lives here on 2nd floor,so visitors are allowed only on ground floor and to Terrace.
We took entrance ticket RS 30 per head,pay for camera or mobile too. When we started walking to palace ,it felt like we were walking on a forest trek,duty path,no proper road is there. The palace is grand, built with red stone,3 storeyed. One has to take off footware and then only enter inside.we were shown all rooms with antique furniture, dining room with 21 seater huge Table and chairs.In corridor,there were displayed skins of lions and tigers,hunted by the Royals.
Our hit Bollywood movies,Lagaan and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam were shot in the palace.
For going up to the Terrace,there is a single track , spiraling staircase .Only one person can either climb up or down. The Terrace has great views and has minerets,has breath taking stony,carved jaalis, wonderful architecture,great photo ops.
It's a worth seeing palace.

The jain temple in Mandvi really beautiful, I've visited twice and can go again. It's so peaceful and amusing. There are intricately carved pillars of 72 little domes encircling a big temple in the middle. It's a wonder for architecture and art lovers.

The first thing most people think of when they visit Mandvi is visiting the seashore. Mandvi Beach is the closest to the town center, across the bridge to the east side of the river, then down the road past a place called Salaya, accessed from just near the Kashi-Vishvanath Temple (sometimes the beach is called Kashi-Vishvanath Beach.) Wind Farm Beach is 7 km west of town, named for the windmills that line it to generate electricity for the area. You can get fresh coconuts and other snacks, swim in very pleasant water, and enjoy a nice view of the coastline.
The Maharao's private beach, behind Vijay Vilas Palace, is 8 km from town, and requires a small fee (the other Beaches are free and open to the public). More secluded than the others, the Vijay Vilas Beach

I did not see a single review of this place before travelling to Gujarat but the place looked very interesting. It's a dying industry and the recent restrictions because of Somalian pirates do no help that. I have to say I was very impressed with all the wooden ships on display. Some newly built , some for repair. Not possible to have a guided tour but you can see some artisans. Fairly easy to find and on low tide plenty of birding opportunity as well. Spotted a few pelicans and some other waders like ibises etc.
Must visit to have a look into the past.

This place is one of the best i visited on kutch tour. It has Narendra Modi stamp all over it. Do watch the documentary of shyamji varma. Its worth watching.

We parked on the banks of the river right by a huge wooden dhow, still under construction.very near to the bridge on the Mandvi Town side.
Such a stimulating spot, it was hard to know what to look at first-I hopped over some water channels to the water's edge, seeing a trio of white donkey's by the shore I saw flamingoes in the river, along with herons & ducks.
After this, walked among the dhows marveling at their size & the skill of the men who build them.
A lovely, cooling breeze blows across the river , carrying a tang of ozone.
A small ferry will transport you to the other side of the river for 5 rupees or you can drive over the bridge & park again.
More dhows to see & spoke to some men who were on watch duty ( no building work going on this day as it was a religious holiday )
They told me that the boats can take 2 years to build, that the wood comes from Malaysia & that they can cost 7 crore rupees to build.

Its a wonderful property in lush green surroundings. Nature Cure without any medicines. The management, staff, and treatment experts are very cordial, helpful and docile.
They have a multiple choice of accommodations. Rooms are well furnished, would suggest they change linen more frequently.
Food is designed by doctors and salt, sugar etc are not used naturally. Almost all food stuff is organic and produced in their own farms.
Somehow we were not brief initially, and did not know a few things. I suggest the management brief and issue all equipment (eye wash and 'nasyam' apparatus) during check ins so that aged people do not have to go all the way when required. We enjoyed our mandatory 7 days stay. I lost 2.5 k g. and that to unwanted flab at my waist.
