Taragarh Palace Hotel

Kris and I took an overnight train with his uncle, aunt, and cousin from the old Delhi train station to Chakki Bank in Himachal Pradesh . We travelled about 3 hours to reach the Taragarh Palace Hotel in the Kangra Valley.

The Taragarh Palace was built in the 1930s as a summer resort and is now run as a hotel by the royal family of Jammu and Kashmir. The walls were adorned with many historical family pictures, the grounds were beautifully manicured, and the facilities were very nice. Every time we went to the dining hall, we passed a tiger picture (printed on waterproof melamine) by the same artist from whom we bought two paintings in Ranthambore.
