History

Nalagarh is a gateway to Himachal Pradesh in North India, 300 km of north Delhi and 60 km from Chandigarh. The Fort which was built in 1421 during the reign of Raja Bikram Chand is located on a hillock at the foothills of the mighty Himalayas affording a panoramic view of the Shivalik hills beyond the Sirsa river.

In the early twentieth century, Nalagarh was one of the Simla hill states, under the government of the Punjab. The country was overrun by the Gurkhas for some years before 1815, when they were driven out by the British, and the raja was confirmed in possession of the territory. Grain and opium have, in the past, been main agricultural products.

Nalagarh was ruled by the Chandela Rajputs who originated from Chanderi in the Bundelkhand region of central India. Various other rajputs then inhabited this place including Tomara, Rathore, Parmar, Pawar, Panwar, Chauhan, Bais. Many have now stayed back as farmers in the Chikni Sirsa Valley.

Fort Nalagarh surrounded by endless acres of greenery, with all modern amenities is an ideal retreat away from the madding crowd of metropolitan cities.

The Nalagarh Fort is one of the major tourist attractions in Nalagarh. The historical monument is one of the very few forts of Himachal located on a hillock at the foothills of the Himalayas. Built in a traditional Rajput style with a blend of Mughal style, the architecture of the fort is worth seeing.
Fort is surrounded by unbelievable greenery as far as eyes can see and the valley views and Shiwalik hills that are seen from here are magnificent. Away from the sophistication of the city it is an ideal getaway into history.
The fort has been renovated and has been converted into a luxurious heritage resort with all modern amenities. The resort is spread over 20 acres with orchards and lawns built maintaining the traditional look.
