Situated 35 km away from Rajkot, Gondal like its neighbors has some visually exciting palaces and living spaces; some like the Riverside Palace commissioned in 1875. A building worth visiting is the old Darbargadh a seventeenth century structure. The palace is built on series of arches delicately carved and inscribed in stone with a magnificent spiral staircase leading all the way to the top. The central marketplace of Gondal is a typical riot of color, the bustle of street cries and hawkers, vendors and beggars and wafting aromas of food stuffs amidst flowing bales of trade cloths in a variety of exotic prints. To experience Gondal is to take a walk down its winding streets inhaling the soul of the city and its people!
