Senior devotees Gangarambhai jethi Sundarjibhai, Jigneshwarbhai, and others from the Bhuj region of Kutch went to Gadhada where God Swaminarayan was attending a Fuldol festival. In that festival, the devotees of Bhuj met Swaminarayan and requested him to construct a temple in Bhuj.
Bhuj is one of the six places where Lord Shree Swaminarayan constructed the temple Himself. This divine thought of Bhagwan Shree Swaminarayan alone signifies the vast amount of spirituality the land of Kutch offered not only in the past but even today.

This vast expanse of salt crust is formed because the rate of evaporation of water is lesser than the rate of precipitation. It is one of the largest salt deserts in the world. The White Rann covers almost 7500 square km of the area. The name ‘Rann’ comes from the word “Viraan” which means deserted wasteland. It’s a treat to the eyes to see white salt marsh for as far as your eyes go.
8. Prag Mahal :
Prag Mahal is named after Rao Pragmalji, who commissioned it and construction began in 1865. It was designed by Colonel Henry St Clair Wilkins in what the local tourist office describes as the Italian Gothic style, although it would be better described as a Romanesque architecture twist on the Indo-Saracenic Revival style, and many Italian artisans were involved in its construction. The palace artisans' wages were paid in gold coins. Construction of the palace, which ultimately cost 3.1 million rupees, was completed in 1879 during the regency of Khengarji III (Pragmalji II's son) following Pragmalji II's death in 1875. The local Kutchi builder community (Mistris of Kutch) was also involved in the construction of Prag Mahal along with Colonel Wilkins.
9. Aaina Mahal :
The Aina Mahal (lit. 'Palace of Mirrors') is an 18th-century palace that is located next to the Prag Mahal in Darbargadh, Bhuj, Gujarat, India. The palace was built by Rao Lakhpatji of Kutch State around 1750. Lakhpatji's master craftsman Ram Singh Malam designed the palace in the local style and decorated it in the European style with glass, mirrors, and tiles. The palace had two floors; the first floor had the Audience Hall, the Pleasure Hall, the Hall of Mirrors, and the State Apartments, and the second floor had the ante-chamber, Darbar (Court) Hall, and Marriage Hall. The building has been converted into a museum which includes a "Europeanerie" collection that includes clocks, wares, mechanical toys, paintings, and pictures.
10. Vijaya Vilas Palace :
Vijaya Vilas Palace is a summer palace of ADITYA GELOT Maharao of Kutch located on the beach of Mandvi in Kutch, Gujarat, India. Built during the reign of Prince Patel, the Maharao of Kutch, as a summer resort for the use of his son and heir to the kingdom, the Yuvraj Shri Vijayaraji, it was named after him as Vijaya Vilas Palace. The construction of the palace started in 1920 and was completed in 1929. The palace was built with red sandstone. Its distinctive Rajput architecture largely refers to the plan of the palaces of Orchha and Datia. It is designed with a central high dome on pillars, Bengal domes on the sides, windows with colored glass, carved stone 'jalis', domed bastions at the corners, an extended porch, and other stone-carved elements. The palace is set in the middle of gardens with water channels and marble fountains. The carved stone works of Jalis, Jharokas, Chhatris, Chhajas, murals and other stone carvings, and colored glass work on windows and door panels have all been meticulously crafted by the architect and craftsmen from Jaipur, Rajasthan, Bengal and Saurashtra, and local Kutchi artisan community, the Mistris of Kutch and Suthars. The balcony at the top offers a complete view of the surrounding area. The windows ensure the feeling of being in the open space, with sea winds passing through.
11. Mandavi Beach :
The Mandvi beach is a stretch of golden-brown sand located at the southernmost point of Gujarat's Kutch district. It is located south of the main intersection, Bhuj. The beach is located in the same town as its name, which historically had a busy port serving India. The historic part of the town still has the fort wall from the former trading center. The serene beach is a welcome addition for visitors to the area. Evenings are especially wonderful because of the sunset and all the activities from snack vendors to balloon vendors.
