Raj Mahal of Mandi

Raj Mahal of Mandi, HImachalIn 1527, when Raja Ajbar Sen set up his capital in Mandi he erected a palace with four towers. It was called Chawki. Later rulers added to the main structure. Moorscraft crossed Mandi in the mid-19th century, he described the palace thus: "The town is situated in the angle between the Beas and Suketi rivers. The most conspicuous object is the palace of the Raja, which stands in the southern part of the town, and presents a number of tall, white buildings, with roofs of blue slate, concave like those of Chinese pagodas." .

At present, part of the palace has been converted into a Heritage Hotel and is named Raj Mahal Hotel. It is built like the colonial manor house and has an impressive facade. The inside is decorated with exquisite period furniture, ancient wall hangings, paintings, photographs mid swords and shields. Being there one breathes history.

Location: Mandi town is 150 Kms from Shimla.
