The Darbargadh Devpur, built about 1905 is the family Fort of the Thakores of Devpur
(Kutch, India). The Darbargadh built within a 2 acre area took three years to complete and remains the private residence of the Devpur family.
Built of local sandstone in the classically ornamental Roha (Kutch) style, it consists of porticos, courtyards, stucco pavilions and pillared halls.
Devpur is also a delight for the birding
and leisure travelers at large. The area’s rich Culture, Handicraft, Tradition or Archaeology would leave
a traveler spellbound.
Rooms : The Devpur family offers their Darbargadh's three well appointed rooms and an eco friendly serviced apartment pavilion with a tennis court for a traditional Kutchi homestay.

Meals: Kutchi / Indian or continental meals are served in a vintage Kutch Rasoi / Dining Room. Guests can also learn or watch the preparation of meals with the hosts willing to explain the nuances and expertise required in their preparation.
