Sharad Bagh Palace Kutch

 

About the location: Sharad Bagh Palace lies as a green oasis in the middle of sun scorched Bhuj. It lost most of its 3rd floor in the 2001 earthquake, and the remaining lower floors are closed. However, the adjacent former dining hall now houses the palace’s eclectic museum collection. Standout exhibits are two huge stuffed tigers that the erstwhile Maharao shot, and his coffin. The gardens, now turned nursery, are an oasis in the middle of the town. These are excellent to walk around on a hot day to cool off between sightseeing.

Brief History: This graceful 1867 Italianate palace, set among shade trees full of crows and bats, was the abode of the last Maharao of Kutch, Madansingh, until his death in 1991.
