Located at a height of 2250 metres, Chail is one of the smallest Himalayan hill resorts. When Bhupinder Singh, Maharaja of Patiala, was expelled from Shimla, he decided to create his own summer capital, which was Chail. Lying just 45 kms away from Shimla, surrounded by a thick cover of deodars and situated at a higher altitude, Chail was a perfect choice in the British-controlled Shimla.
Chail is a resort in the real sense of the term. Rajgarh palace with it’s elaborate furnishings, comfortable log huts and cottages, dense forests, and serene walks, sprawling lawns, a children’s park, a lover’s hill and sport facilities make chail worth a visit. It also provides good, opportunities for fishing and trekking and boasts of the world’s highest cricket pitch and polo ground.
Maharaja Bhupinder Singh had originally intended this to be the site of his palace, and had even started building it, but as is believed, a `sidh’, saintly person appeared in the Maharaja’s dream, and declared that this was the place where he had meditated. As a result, Bhupinder Singh shifted his venue and built a temple on the spot.
