  • Description:

    The Prag Mahal is a 19th-century palace located next to the Aina Mahal in Bhuj, Gujarat, India. Prag Mahal is named after Rao Pragmalji II, who commissioned it and construction began in 1865. It was designed by Colonel Henry Saint Wilkins in the Italian Gothic 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) were also involved in construction of Prag Mahal along with Colonel Wilkins.
