Dr. Digvijay Sinh, the Maharaja of Wankaner
WANKANER: The Darbargah
The ancient Darbargarh is intact, but cracked, with one smaller wing collapsed.
WANKANER: Ranjitvilas Palace
The top of the tower of the palace collapsed into the tower shaft destroying the clock and also penetrating the roof of the palace. The pavilions on the roof and the other smaller towers were also heavily damaged. The Palace remains occupied by Dr Sinh and his family.
