Jamnagar Tourist Places

Lakhota Palace
This diminutive palace once belonged to the Maharaja of Nawanagar. Today it houses a small museum with displays from archaeological sites in the area. The museum is reached by a short causeway from the northern side of Ranmal Lake, and is open daily except Wednesday from 10.30 am to 1 pm and 3 to 5.30 pm there's a small entry fee.

Bala Hanuman Temple
The Bala Hanuman Temple is on the southeastern side of Ranmal Lake, and here, 24 hours a day since 1 August 1964, there's been continuous chanting of the invocation Shri Ram, Jai Ram, Jai Jai Ram'. This devotion has earned the temple a place in the Guinness Book of Records. Early evening is a particularly good time to visit as it's fairly animated then. In fact this whole area on the southeastern edge of the lake becomes very lively around sunset when people come to promenade, and the usual chai and kulfi stalls set up and ply their trade.

Cremation Park
You don't require a morbid disposition to visit Jamnagar's cremation park, 10 minutes north of the city centre by auto-rickshaw. There are statues of saints and deities, as well as scenes from the Ramayana. This is an interesting place to visit, and the atmosphere is anything but depressing.
