On the long way from the Gir National Park to Bhuj in Kachchh, my driver and me had a short stop in Junagadh.
Junagadh boasts a number of impressive sights, including the ancient Uparkot Fort and the temples of the Girnar Hill. However, my time was limited and I could only get a quick glimpse at two very impressive mausoleums which stand somewhat forlorn in a yard slightly north of the city centre. While the Tomb of Mahabat Khan is already magnificent enough with its Euro-Indo-Islamic architecture (built between 1878 and 1892), most visitors come because of the fantastic Bahauddin Maqbara with its minarets encircled by stairways.
Following this small detour, we continued our drive to Kachchh, where I was to do further research in the coming weeks.
