As far as palaces go, this wasn't the grandest. However, the displays were fairly well maintained. There could have been more information put up about the artefacts though. It's worth a quick visit.

All the early days' artifacts are on display here. The erstwhile Maharaja's style of living can be very well visualised. A must visit if you travel to Bhuj

It takes you back into history but unlike some of the other sites i visited this isn't maintained or preserved well at all. 18th century structure but could have been better preserved.
