About:

Mandvi is a beautiful city and a municipality in the district of Kutch in Gujarat. Mandvi was earlier popular as the Paris of Kutch. This is because the Maharajas of Kutch made this place their summer resort because of its pleasant climate. With its rich traditional history, a tour to Mandvi is a must on your visit to the forts and monuments in Gujarat. The Vijay Vilas Palace in Mandvi is one of the best examples of the city’s glamorous historical background.
The Vijay Vilas Palace rises from a multi-acre estate along the coast near the town. This palace of His Highness Maharao Vijay Singhji, who ruled over Kutch in the 1940s, is an eclectic blend of architectural styles. Umbrella-domes like those seen in palaces of Bengal, cupolas that would not look out of place in Mughal buildings, jarokhas and cusp-arches like those seen in Rajput palaces of Rajasthan, Victorian Gothic arches and classical columns make up the ensemble. Yet the architects were skilled enough to make the entire complex look harmonious.
Mandvi’s Vijay Vilas Palace stands majestically amidst the landscaped and beautifully manicured gardens watered by a number of water channels and equally impressive marble fountains. The palace is a brilliant exemplification of Rajput architecture. One look at the palace and it won’t take the knowledgeable ones to understand that there is much similarity between the Vijay Vilas Palace, Mandvi and those of the Orcha and Datia palaces.
Some of the noteworthy features of the palace comprise of central dome supported by pillars, the windows graced with colored glasses, the intricate and exquisite window carvings, the bastions at the corners and the extended porch. Another aspect that makes this place such a hot favorite for the tourists is the private beach that features air-conditioned and tented accommodation. If you claim to be a beach lover, you can’t possibly ignore the appeal of the beach that boasts of a pristine and untainted beauty.
One of the reasons for this is the location of Mandvi i.e. on the banks of the River Rukmavati, near Gulf of Kutch in India. Initially, Mandvi was a fortified town and was enclosed within the fort walls. With time, the walls have disappeared, leaving behind a bastion on the southwest which acts as a lighthouse. During its glorious times, it served as an important trade center.
