This huge palace is easy to get to- at the southern end of the promenade that runs along the beach. While it doesn't seem possible to go in, it is still spectacular to view from the outside and the general area is very nice.

It was built by Rana Natwarsinhji, who was the last Maharaja of the Princely State of Porbandar, in the early years of the 20th century, with clear European influences. The palace is now used by the successors of the Maharaja's family who reside in London.
