Honeymoon in Chamba

Chamba is nicely tucked between Jammu and Kashmir on the North West and Lahaul and Bara Bangal area of Himachal on the South-East. Chamba valley is chiseled out of high mountains on all sides and a river running through it. Sitting just 52 km from Dalhousie, Chamba wore a very different look from the colonial town. Dalhousie is today known for its colonial remains and heritage where as Chamba still clings close to its old customs and heritage.

Sharp cliffs, serene river, greenery and ancient heritage make Chamba a scenic beauty. The unique and protective landscape shielded the town from serious invasions. It is one of the only towns in North India to still preserve a documented history from 500 AD Circa. Temples constructed thousands of years ago by Chamba Rajas still continued to be places of worship and attract thousands of tourists.

The adjoining areas have immense scope of leisure pursuits too; the plateaus and the snowline can be sighted from any part of the town. The town was founded by Raja Sahil Varman in the beginning of 10th Century and was named after her beloved daughter Champa.Honeymoon in Chamba Amazingly the great Muslim rulers like Akbar and Shah Jahan never invaded this smaller Rajput kingdom. In fact Shah Jahan was a close friend of Raja Prathvi Singh (1641- 1664), a Chamba king. Though there were occasional fights the kingdom was never destroyed beyond repair and retained its honor even during the British era. It was in 1948 that Chamba became part of Himachal Pradesh.

Apart from the snow capped mountains and rich scenic beauty, Chamba has many interesting and unexposed temples dating back to 1000 AD.
