Jambughoda Heritage Resort

What I liked most about Jambughoda Palace Resort is its old world charm. There are pottery items, idols and doors belonging to the erstwhile era still intact. They do not have a restaurant there; they only prepare a fixed buffet lunch on order and/or when a decent sized group is available. They did, though, agree to give us cool water and some amazing coffee, which we had in the open sitting area beneath trees.

The palace is a sprawling property. Very quiet and very green. The rooms, dining area and common sitting area are located close to each other but one is free to roam around and explore the rest of the premises.

There is a front veranda that displays several photographs of the royal family.

On the other end, a well and small servant quarters gives way to indefinite fields.

Of course, you have to be careful of the noisy ducks and 2 seemingly docile giant dogs. The ducks are scarier than the dogs.

The moss covered walls may look old but the creepers enhance their ageless beauty.

Jambughoda is known for its wildlife sanctuary. Apart from that, it is close to Champaner and Pavagadh. Jambughoda can be treated as a weekend getaway where relaxing in a resort can be combined with some sightseeing in Champaner or strolling in the sanctuary. Unfortunately, the 2-3 resorts here are not well maintained. The heritage resort may be the best bet out of the lot.

  2. Hello,
    I came across your site in the indiblogger, having spent a major part of my life in Baroda, I must say, your blog is a great reminder of my childhood spent there. I love the photos here in this spot, and all the restaurants and markets in your posts make me want to jump and go there.
    Lovely blog,

    • That is so nice to hear! If I can find it difficult to leave Baroda, after being here for 11 months, I understand how nostalgic it can make you if you have spent your childhood here! I am leaving Baroda in the next 4 days but not before doing some last minute sightseeing and photoshoots:)
