History | Getting There | Travel Guidelines | Excursion | Wildlife | Shopping

Lakhpat is the last town situated at the western end of India, on the India-Pakistan border, at the junction of Kori Creek and Rann of Kuchh. It is located at 23°49'N and 68°48'E.

A legend says that Rao Lakhpat founded it and hence, it is named Lakhpat.

History
Lakhpat Lakhpat is a fortified town with high walls, several gates and bastions made out of hard stone. After a short period of prosperity, Lakhpat lost its maritime significance in 1851 AD, when the Sindhu river changed its course. Once a thriving town with population of 15000 is today a deserted town with only few families living here.

Trade generated a daily income of one lakh (1,00,000) Kori - an old currency of Kutch State.
