by a hillside covered with trees of tall Himalayan cedar - the fabled
'deodar' - Woodville is a stately art-deco mansion. From 1865 to 1881, the
site held the residence of the British Commanders-in-Chief of the Indian
army. In 1938, Raja Sir Bhagat Chandra of Jubbal, had the old house
removed and in its place, the present structure was created by a body of
Pathan and Chinese workmen.
The terraced lawns and a façade bearded with trimmed Virginia vines, is complemented by an evocative interior - complete with select objects d` art, hunting trophies and even signed photographs of Hollywood's 'golden age' stars.
