The Naggar castle is a huge timber-bound structure built in the style indigenous to the Western Himalayas, in which huge logs and stones are placed alternately, with the stones bound together by mud. The deodar or spruce beams are placed horizontally and inlaid with stones. The roof is slanting and has icicle-like wooden hangings as decoration. When seen from the valley and the road below it looks like a tall building. But on reaching it, one finds it just at the level of the road. It is built in stages like the step fields of Kullu. At present it is with HP Tourism and is a Heritage Hotel. From the castle one could see the far off snow-covered peaks, the delightful Beas valley below and the lush green hill-sides dotted with orchards. To be in Naggar is to be in a fairy land, so unusual is the entire ambiance of the place.
Location: 27 Kms from Kullu.
