Chail Tailormade Holidays

The former 'summer capital' of Patiala, Chail is 43 kilometres from Shimla. When Maharaja Bhupinder Singh of Patiala incurred the wrath of Lord Kitchener, he was banned from the summer capital of the Raj, Shimla. Enraged by this, the Maharaja decided to build a new and better summer capital for himself. He picked Chail, at the time just a little village and he rebuilt the city. Chail is one of the few hill stations not built by the British. With the spectacular views of the Himalayas and surrounded by lush forests, Chail is a peaceful retreat.

Chail is built on three hills - the palace on Rajgarh Hill, the British Residency on Pandhewa Hill and Sadh Tiba is the third hill. Sadh Tiba was originally the site of the palace but the Maharaja halted construction there and built a temple, Sidh Baba ka Mandir, following a dream. Chail overlooks Satluj Valley and at night, Shimla and Kasauli are visible.

Chail has the world’s highest cricket pitch at 2444m and it also doubles up as a polo field. Chail Wildlife Sanctuary is spread over an area of approximately 11,000 acres, the sanctuary dates back to the year 1976 and supports a wide variety of wildlife. The Maharaja's Palace, also known as the Rajgarh Palace, was established in 1891 and is today, one of the most popular attractions of Chail. The interiors of the palace have been done up with elaborate furnishings and give an idea of the rich lifestyle of the royalty in the earlier times.
