Colorful Chamba @ Himachal Pradesh, INDIA

The town of Chamba is located at a distance of 56 kms from Dalhousie. Unlike Dalhousie, Chamba is located in a valley surrounded by majestic mountains and lies on the banks of the river Ravi. The town is also famous for the fact that a part of the Bollywood movie, Taal, was shot here.

The market area in the town is not well-maintained and desperately cries out for a cleaning up.

The colorful sloping roofs contrast well with the brown of the mountains and the deep blues of the sky. There is a vast green area right in front of the town. This is the garden that features in most of the Himachal pradesh Tourism Pictures of Chamba. When I visited Chamba, the green area was not open for public. Work was in progress for installing light posts and what looked like the entire population of the town was simply standing there and watching the labourers at work. These are the simple pleasures that you lose out on while living a super fast city life.All around the green area, there is a paved path. The place is ideal for an evening walk. I had Golgappas there. Not good as the ones we get in Delhi.These were the lights that were being installed in the green area. There were a few benches there leading me to believe that the garden does open up for the public some time. The Entrance. Among other attractions of Chamba is this Raja Bhuri Singh Museum which show cases several paintings, sculptures and weapons. The museum was established in 1908.Chamba, Himachal Pradesh, himalayas, Taal, Valley, Town, Museum,  Raja Bhuri Singh

I visited Chamba in 2007 first time and was very disappointed to see this place after Dalhousie and Khajjiar...


Even the ground called "Chaugan" was not so beautiful as its there in your photographs...
