Lakhota Lake - Dismal Condition

Jamnagar citizens are famous of merry making, and may be they will be equally famous for neglecting their age old heritage, The Lakhota Fort.
This centuries old monument is in dismal condition due to negligence by local authority and Jamnagar residents.

Lakhota Fort and the Ranmal Lake were constructed two centuries ago by Jam Ranjitsinh. The Lakhota fort is constructed in the middle of Ranmal lake. After independence it was converted to museum. Semi-circular bastions, turrets, pavillion and many exquisite sculpture stored in the Lakhota fort also needs renovation.

The restoration project started of in 2005 but is at stale, authorities claim that un-availability of funds is the main reason. However if someone visit the Shravan fair at Pradarshan grounds, you can easily notice huge hoardings of City politicians, and in some cases mayor and deputy mayor as well. How come authority waste money for such publicity and deny funds for heritage which is the identity of the city.

Shravan Fair Location Arguments

Although Shravan Fair Location case is pending in the Jamnagar court, many stall vendors have requested JMC commissioner to organise fair in the pradarshan ground. Vendors argue that the details of location was not disclosed to them when they filed the tendors.

Stall Vendors feel that the land around the Nageshwar area has loosen and not SAFE for entertainment rides, they are not bluffing entirely as last year two rides had to be shut down during "Shravan Mela" (Shravan fair). Also there are many ifs and buts quotted in the letter given to Commissioner.


On the other hand, if the fair are in pradarshan ground, more people will join as the location is in the city limits.

Bandhani May Get GI Tag

There are some traditional fabrics which can stand apart even in today's hip-hop cultured dressing.

Perhaps the first name which comes in mind of a Gujarati lady will be "Bandhani".

With the name comes bright color, fine quality and a rich history of handmade Sarees, Jamnagar is famous for Tie-Die Bandhani, which is done by hands. this is a special art mastered by a few, the art is followed by generations and new vibrant colors and designs are added time by time.

Bandhani is not just a Saree, in parts of Kutch, Jamnagar and Rajasthan it is used as a turban or dupatta, modern ladies wear dress from Bandhani as its comfortable in hot season.

To save this exotic product, now Indian Textile ministry wants to brand the item with a location tag. Textile Ministry is working on a long list of 5,000 such items across India.

Govt. is working on a GI petition. If thats gets through, Bandhani makers will get a new life. As today there are many oppertunists who sell bogus Bandhani in the name of real one.
