Morbi Tourist Places

Morbi is very well renowned as ‘Paris Of India’. Heritage place in Morbi includes Mani Mandir, Mahendra Drive, Nehru Gate, Green Tower and Hanging Bridge Julta pul.

Green Tower
Inspired from the ‘Eiffel Tower’ of Paris, Maharaja Lakhdhirji planned for Green Tower. It’s totally green so it’s called as ‘Green Tower’. It was inaugurated by Mayer Wood in 1888.

Darbargadh, on the bank of Machchhu, is an original residence of Morbi rulers. It can be reached by crossing an imposing gate and arcade facade. Now it is the only heritage hotel at Morbi.

Mani Mandir:
Mani Mandir is a temple situated in the courtyard of Wellington Secretariat. The images of Laxmi Narayan, Mahakali, Ramchandraji, Radha-Krishna and Shiva are enshrined in this temple. Mani Mandir is made out of Jaipur stone with excellent workmanship and exquisitely carved elements- arches, brackets, 'jalis', 'chhatris' and 'shikhara'.

Wellington Secretariat:
It is an excellent example of the application of principles of Rajput architecture by master craftsmen, at the turn of the century.

Suspension Bridge:
The Suspension Bridge, an engineering marvel built at the turn of the century, reflects the progressive and scientific nature of the rulers of Morbi. This was built to give a unique identity to Morbi using the latest technology available in those days, in Europe. It is 1.25 m wide and spans 233 m on the Machchhu River connecting Darbargadh Palace and Lakhdhirji Engineering College.

Green Chowk:
Green Chowk is a town square approached by a series of three gates. European town planning principles inspired the creation of these gates as landmarks in the town. The Nehru Gate is made out of stone using elements of Rajput architecture with central clock tower, while another one uses elements of western architecture and is capped by a three-storeyed cast iron frame structure with a dome.

Art Deco Palace:
It is a marvelous example of influence of last phase of art deco movement of Europe. It is poetry in granite, a low two-storey in banded horizontal fenestration, curves and bays, which resemble the London underground stations of Charles Holden. The palace has six drawing rooms, six dining rooms, and fourteen bedrooms. The decorated subterranean bedroom, with many erotic murals and a bathroom made from seashells are also noteworthy.
