Brief History

This impressive yet crumbling tower in Jamnagar overlooks the south side of Ranmal Lake. It is also known as the Bhujiyo Bastion. Restoration work is underway; once completed, visitors will be able to view the city from the top of the tower.

It is believed that the king of Jamnagar and Bhuj were brothers who had set up their kingdoms about 300km apart. They even designed the cities in the same fashion. Bhujiyo Kotho was presumably the entrance to a secret passage from Jamnagar to Bhuj. While no one ratified this by taking the part, the story was intriguing.

Best time to visit: The best time to visit is between November and February.
