Chail

Chail Palace is well known for its architecture, the palace was built as summer retreat by the Maharaja of Patiala during the British Raj. The cricket ground and a polo ground which is there at an altitude of 2,444 m was owned by royal family of Patiala. It is the world's highest cricket ground. Chail is also considered as the hiker's paradise. The area is away from the bustling life of the state capital Shimla. In 1891, Maharaja Bhupinder Singh of Patiala incurred the rage of Lord Kitchener. It led to the restriction of his entry in the Indian summer capital, Shimla. The place is surrounded by the forests of chir pine and gigantic deodars.
