Location: Chail, Himachal Pradesh
Significance: Heritage Hotel

The Palace Hotel, Chail, Himachal Pradesh, Chhail, Himachal PradeshThe little 'hill station' of Chail came into being when Bhupinder Singh, Maharaja of Patiala was banished from Shimla , the 'summer capital' of British India, after a dalliance with the Commander-in-Chief's daughter in the late 19th century. Facing Shimla-at Chail-the smarting Maharaja decided to build his own 'summer capital'.

A splendid mansion surrounded by picturesque cottages soon took shape. Chail is encircled by forests of 'deodar'-Himalayan cedar-trees and has splendid views on all sides.

In 1972, the property set in about 75-acres of land-including orchards, tennis courts and cottages-passed into the hands of Himachal Tourism, and is now run as a popular Heritage Hotel and a full-fleged destination resort.
