Instead of maintaining it's grandiosity it is in the pits...the last Prince lives in Pakistan as was told by the guards...such a grand collection of elephants seats in pure silver..now full of dust and morano glass items etc etc , hunting equipment , jewellery coins etc. The main durbar hall...

The place is closed on Wednesdays and I ended up being there on a Wednesday. So jjust took some snaps of the building itself which is pretty impressive. Wednesdays and every 2nd and 4th Saturday and public holidays the place is closed.

We visited Junagadh for the architecture and religious sites but I'm glad we stopped at the museum. It was extremely busy and noisy when we visited and rather difficult to see many of the displays, but what we did see made the experience worthwhile. The durbar hall was breathtaking. As a visitor to India I am constantly amazed by these... More

It's dusty,everything needs cleaning especially the glass in the cabinets which is quite filthy but it has some very worthwhile items to view. Good weapon collection, carved furniture, silver items and stunning silver Howdahs.

You are taken back in time to the days of the Nawabs,Where the last vestiges of Junagadh's royalty are stored.Weapons, palanquins, howdahs for elephants,chandeliers and silks are on display here. The portraits of the erstwhile Nawabs look down on their erstwhile wealth.The Darbar Hall is maintained in it's original glory,with the Nawab's throne followed in descending order of rank by...

Junagadh museum was recently commissioned in late 2014. It hosts the historical remains of the kingdom of Junagadh and it's various rulers. It is in the heart of the city and can be reached through car or an auto. It is a decent museum and worth a visit.
