The Pratap Vials Palace in Jamnagar is a remarkable place, which was built during the reign of His Royal Highness Jam Ranjit Singhji. The palace upholds the blend of Indian carvings and European architecture. It was built with resemblance to the Victoria Memorial Building of Calcutta, but the domes of the palace are built according to Indian architecture. Three domes of the Pratap Vilas Palace are glass made. The carvings of flowers, leaves, creepers, birds and animals on the columns enhance the appeal of the palace. The Gujarat earthquake of 2001 has caused loss of some parapets and also the separation of some upper walls at the roof level of the palace.
