ramparts command a breathtaking view of the plains and towns of
Punjab, and the perennially snowclad peaks of the Himalayas.
Ramgarh is an important
landmark of the famous Gurkha Wars of the mid nineteenth century.
Nalagarh was the
capital of the kingdom of Hindur founded by Raja Ajai Chand in 1100 A.D.
It was ruled by the Chandela Rajputs. The Chandela kings were great
patrons of art and architecture. Raja Ram Chander, another illustrious
ruler of the same dynasty, was also a great builder who constructed the
Ramgarh Fort and the town of Ramshere. Raja Surendra Singh was the last
ruler of Nalagarh and his son, Raja Vijayendra is the present ceremonial
ruler of Nalagarh
The Nalagarh Fort has a series
of structures that are mostly built in the Mughal style of architecture.
These have been exhaustively renovated and are now a quality heritage
