Gondal, a mere 40 km away from Rajkot and 64 kms from Junagadh, ruled by a family of car enthusiasts whose royal passion resulted in a fine collection of automobiles which are now a part of the museum in the palace premises. Such was the royal passion that Gondal had the best planned and well designed road system in pre-independent Gujarat. Gondal like its neighbours has some visually exciting palaces and living spaces; some like the Riverside Palace commissioned in 1875 by Bhagwatsinghji is now a heritage hotel. The palace grounds form a private forest reserve with frolicking deer and a variety of birds, adding to the tranquil beauty of the place.
