Towers and Gates
http://image03.webshots.com/3/0/60/25/22706025ABbHaRSdMA_ph.jpgThe only remains left of the fortified town of Jamnagar are the two towers of Mandvi & Pancheshwar and the Khambhalia & Grain Market Gate. Apart from this, there is some part of the wall surrounding the city which can be still seen. It was built in the 17th century by Wazir Meraman Khawas, also known as Meru Khawas. He is said to be a very powerful dictator, who ruled over Jamnagar between 1744 and 1800 AD.
