Lakhpat is a small town and sub-district in Kutch which literally means 'the city of millionaire'. The town is within the four walls of the 18th century Lakhpat Fort. The town has been a very important trading post connecting Gujarat and Sindh. The decline of the town started after the earthquake of 1819 which diverted the flow of the Sindhu river away from the town.
The town still remains as one of the places frequented by tourists. The great walls of 7kms that were erected in the year 1801 by Jamadar Fateh Muhammed are nearly intact after all these years. The night sky in this area is an amazing view due to the extremely clear desert air. The sunrise and sunset are a must-watch in this beautiful landscape.
