Location : Jamnagar
Jamnagar came into limelight 444 years ago when it was established on the bank of Nagmatti and Rangmattiriver by the Shri Jam Raval, who is deemed as one of the heirs of Lord Krishna.
The city witnessed a major makeover during the rule of KS Ranjit Sinhi, who was also a famous cricketer. Ranjit Sinhi, along with the famous architecture Edward Lutyens, reconstructed the city in European style and made many gardens, lakes and important landmarks like Willingdon Crescent, Pratap Vilas Palace, and Solarium were built under his patronage. After such major uplift, the city started getting the attention of people and was captioned Jewel of Khathiyawad.
Legends even say that Lord Krishna used to stay in this city when he moved out of Mathura.
here are multiple attractions and places to see in Jamnagar but one place that dominates the old city is the Lakhota Fort, the original seat of Jamnagar ruler and Ranmal Lake, which surrounds the fort. Respiratory in the fort showcases finest sculptures from the nearby evacuation sites, dating from 9th to 18th centuries. Within the walking distance from Ranmal lake is the Kotha Bastion, which was once the storehouse of rulers weapons.
In the heart of the old city is the circular Darbar Gadh, an area where the rulers of Jamshedpur received members of the general public and heard their grievances. The lanes leading off from Darbar Gadh are worth exploring as one can see people putting together different colours and making the finest Bandhani fabric. In this area, there are two Jain temples, the Shantinath and Adinath temple, entirely covered with mirror, gold leaf, murals and mosaics, one cannot ignore these temples. Close to the temples is the 19th century Ratan Bhai mosque, its doors inlaid with mother-of-pearl.
