Built in the mid 18th century, Chamba Palace or Akhand Chandi Palace is the stately white building in Chamba. Lording over the tinsel town, the palace overlooks Chaughan, Lakshmi Narayan Temple, Sui Mata Temple, Rang Mahal, Hari Rai Temple and Bansi Gopal Temple. An exuberant reflection of the bygone art and architecture, the royal palace was originally constructed during the reign of Raja Umedh Singh as a residential edifice. Over the years, the palace was reconstructed, renovated and modified plenty of times both by the British and the Mughal emperors. They added the Darbar Hall (also called as Marshall Hall), the Zenana Mahal and several specimens of Mughal architecture; the palace therefore, is a wonderful amalgamation of the both their designs and creativity.
Akhand Chandi Palace also has a distinguishable green roof which discerns the regal building from other places of importance in Chamba. The entire premises are divided in three segments, with sloping roofs for the easy shedding of snow. The extravagant architecture boasts of well-decorated arc styled windows and intricate wood and glass work in the interior walls. Surrounded by plush gardens and fancy fountains, the palace was handed over to the Himachal government in 1958 and has now been converted into a government college and a district library.
