Brief History

The attractive, tree-lined promenades around Ranmal Lake have been seriously upgraded and surrounded by a fence with several gateways. There’s a bona fide running track, a brand-new history museum on the east side of the lake, and the diminutive mid-19th-century Lakhota Palace, an island fort in the middle of the lake, housing a small museum featuring weaponry, manuscripts, and pottery from the 9th to the 18th centuries.

The trajectory of Jamnagar states that the city was built in the year 1540, by Jam Rawal, who belonged to one of the most influential Royal dynasties of Gujarat. The Lakhota Palace was built by the same dynasty as a place to keep the royal arsenal, which could come handy in times of war. Else, it was inaccessible thanks to the location in the middle of a lake.

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