Jamnagar Sights and Landmarks Guide, India

The not so famous city of India, Jamnagar, is today recognized on the national as well as on the international level due to the world’s largest oil refinery which is part of Jamnagar itself. This refinery has helped Jamnagar become an important city for this planet. This refinery was started by India’s leading group of companies, Reliance Industries Ltd. Slowly many companies entered the Jamnagar market and today another leading oil brand, Essar Oil, also has its refinery in Jamnagar. Slowly the small city has become very important in the national map of India.

Although Jamnagar might be relatively new city for India considering the fact that it was formed somewhere in the year 1920 by Maharaja Kumar Shri Ranjitsinhji still the city has many famous landmarks which are enough to attract local as well as foreign tourists towards itself.

Ranmal Lake is one of the most talked about tourist hot spots for the city. The uniqueness of the lake is defined by two forts which are famous for their design and architecture. One of these forts, the famous Lakhota Fort, is located right in the center of the lake on an island and the other fort, Bhujia Kotha, is located just next to the lake. These twin forts and their unique location plus proximity is enough to attract huge visitors towards itself. Lakhota Fort houses the famous Jamnagar Museum which is another reason why tourists are regularly attracted towards the Ranmal Lake.

Pratap Villas is another tourist hot spot that regularly attract visitors. This group of villas was built after taking inspiration from Victoria Memorial located in Calcutta. Pratap Villas is famous for its unique design which includes various bird carvings, creepers, animals, and plants. Three different domains of this monument are of total glass, another unique feature for this monument.

Last but never the least; Marine National Park is located around 30 kilometers from Jamnagar city. It is situated on the Gulf of Kutch and it covers around 42 islands that are spread over an area of around 460 kilometer square. The huge size of this park is enough to mark its importance on the tourist map of India. There are only three marine national parks in India and this is one of those three. The other two marine national parks of India are Andaman Nicobar Islands and Gulf of Mannar.
