Himachal Pradesh is home to a stunning 100-year-old heritage property that’s been restored to its former glory. Resembling a larger than life movie set or a European mansion from Agatha Christie’s novels, the Chateau Garli is a sight to behold. Nestled in the picturesque valley of Kangra it offers a refreshing breath of fresh air, away from the monotony of city life. Well, let’s tell you how.
100-Year-Old Chateau Garli Was Inspired By Different Architectural Styles
The Chateau Garli was built in 1921 by Lala Mela Ram Sud. The Suds were a well-travelled mercantile community that drew architectural inspiration for the mansion from Portuguese, Mughal, Colonial, Kangri and Rajasthani styles. Set in the village of Garli, this mansion fell into a state of despair for nearly 20 years, as it was left unvisited. But in 2012, Lala Mela Ram Sud’s great-grandson, Amish Sud and grandson, Yatish C. Sud restored the mansion. Today, it’s one of the only mansions that is restored to its former glory in Garli and also hosts visitors.
It Features Belgian Chandeliers, Gramaphone, Colourful Glass Windows & Retro Furniture
The breathtaking Chateau Garli will remind you of a European mansion. From the vibrant blue and red Belgian chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, the large wooden radio in the living room to the majestic gramophone, you’d be transported back t the olden era. Chateau Garli features three beautiful suites, four premium rooms, eight deluxe rooms, three standard rooms and single room occupancy. The rooms are equipped with stunning wooden beds, a Rajasthani style wooden dressing table, cupboards, and even a cradle.
