Built on the bank of Gajner Lake, this quaint palace was constructed by Maharaja Ganga Singh. Located amidst thick forest, it is an ideal place to indulge in bird watching. This palace is a perfect example of architectural splendour and is spread over 6000 acres. It is made of red sand-stone.
Junagarh Fort is located amidst the Thar Desert and was built by Raja Rai Singh in 1594. Located on a sprawling land of 5.28 hectares, this place is studded with temples, palaces, and pavilions. Its 986m-long wall, with 37 bastions, is surrounded by a (now dry) moat.
