About Jamnagar

Jamnagar is a city and a municipal corporation, located in Jamnagar district, in the Indian state of Gujarat. Jamnagar is the sixth largest city in the indian state. Jamnagar,erstwhile Nawanagar, in Gujarat, is a relatively new city of India. It was built in the late 1920s by Maharaja Kumar Shri Ranjitsinhji. It has the Gulf of Kutch to the north and lies approximately 337 km away from the capital of Gujarat, Gandhinagar.

The city has gained recent recognition after Reliance Industries set up the largest refinery of the world here. Apart from that, Jamnagar also houses the oil refinery of Essar Oil. Because of the presence of two of the most important refineries of the country, Jamnagar has come to be called as the ‘Oil City’ of India.In the olden days, it was an important part of Saurashtra.

Legend has it that Lord Krishna dwelled in Dwarka, which is now a part of Jamnagar, after moving base from Mathura. The religious flavour of Jamnagar can be gauged from the presence of various temples in the region.

The Shantinath Mandir is particularly beautiful, with coloured columns and a gilt-edged dome of concentric circles.

Lakhota Palace and Ranmal Lake

    The Lakhota Palace is situated on an island in the middle of the Ranmal lake in the shape of the large bastion. This palace once belonged to the Maharaja of Nawanagar. An arched stone bridge with balustrade connects the Lakhota Palace with the town. It was constructed as a famine relief work in 1839-45 AD. The elaborate entrance gateway with carved jharokhas at upper level, overlooking the lake, the stark blank wall at the base, give it a look of invincible fortification.
