Jamnagar is a well-laid out town in Saurashtra, once governed by the princely family of Jadeja dynasty. The palace has a collection of Victorian paintings. Right in the heart of the city, in the centre of a lake and approached by a stone bridge are two magnificent buildings - the Kotha Bastion and the Lakota Museum. One of the curiosities of the Kotha Bastion is an old well the water of which can be obtained by blowing in a small hole in the flooring of the building. The Lakota is a local museum displayed on the terrace of the building. It has a fine collection of sculpture dating from the 9th to the 18th century. There are also pictures and numismatic galleries, pottery from Saurashtra, palaeolithic and neolithic finds from the Narmada valley and a manuscript and epigraphic gallery with copper plates and ancient inscriptions
