Willingdon Crescent Jamnagar


About the location: This European-style arcaded crescent was built by Jam Ranjitsinhji to replace Jamnagar’s worst slum. It now houses an assortment of shops and is commonly known as Darbargadh, after the now-empty royal residence across the street.

Brief History: Jam Ranjitsinhji’s idea of giving the city of Jamnagar a facelift included getting rid of the slum areas. One such place that came under the scanner was the former location of where the Willingdon Crescent now stands. It stands opposite the 16th century palace of the city.

Best time to visit: The best time to visit is between November and February.
