This 40 Years Old Himalayan Castle-Turned-Hotel Is Where The Famous "Ye Ishq Haye" Song Was Shot!

Staying in a Medieval Castle can be a really different experience, and that is what the Naggar Castle offers to its guests. The castle is situated in Kullu, Himachal Pradesh and it was built in 1460 A.D. by Raja Sidh Singh. Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (HPTDC) took over the castle to turn it into a heritage hotel around 40 years ago in 1978. Currently, the castle is a spectacular looking and comfortable stay at the valley.
