Chamba, it seems, has had very few forts. But two of the forts that claim attention are Taragarh and Lodhargarh. Taragarh fort is on the Kakira-Chowari road above the Bainia village under Taragarh panchayat. The trek is about two to two-and-a-half kilometers through thick growth, boulders and narrow goat path.
Lodhargarh was built by Raja Ganesh Varman and its earlier name was Ganeshgarh. The four ramparts are intact and stand as witness to time but the inside is all broken and fallen apart. The fort was probably just a small check post or watchtower able to store provisions and water for a small garrison.
