Introduction to Forts & Palaces in Himachal

"Are there forts and places In Himachal Pradesh ?" One may wonder because the Himalayas itself is like a huge fort protecting our country. But Himachal Pradesh has had history there are kings and queens and forts and palaces. The histories of the royal or princely families are fascinating as they exude the exotic ambiance of times gone by.

Forts & Places in HImachal PradeshForts and palaces are the living monuments of that ambiance; they are the amphitheatres where the high dramas of war and peace, intrigues and connivances, loyalties and disloyalties were enacted; they have also been the breeding grounds for culture, religion, art, architecture and literature. Stories, myths and legends have come to be associated with them giving them an added appeal.

Amid the desolation of the forts and the vanishing grandeur of the palaces, there still lurks a "Presence", and the murmur of the past comes back to us like an echo, when we venture to explore further. The forts and palaces of Himachal Pradesh provide ample ground for an exploration and expedition into the past. These forts and palaces are singularly different from their prototypes in other parts of India because of the topography of the region, and that accounts for their charm. So here is a slice of history!
