Rasulkhanji, Navab Junagadha. 1900', of the Durbar Hall at Junagadh, Gujarat, taken by the Solankee Studio, Rajkot, in c.1900. In the mid to late 19th century Junagadh was developed and improved with a number of new palaces, public buildings and parks, notably during the reign of Nawab Mahabat Khan II (ruled 1851-1882).
