Rang Mahal, built by Raja Umed Singh in the 18th century, is one of the largest monuments located in Chamba region. The palace highlights the perfect blend of Mughal and British architecture and has strikingly designed high fort-like walls. When the monument was handed over to State Handicrafts Department, many changes were carried out in the architecture of building and the historical artifacts of the same are placed in Bhuri Singh Museum. Rang Mahal was not only built with the aim to provide king's abode but also to serve as the warehouse for treasure and grains.
In the present times, Rang Mahal has been completely taken over by the Himachal Government and serves as Himachal Emporium, a popular shopping destination for beautiful local handmade goods. You can also find embroidery in the emporium, made by local women on the silky fabrics.
You can visit Rang Mahal from Monday to Saturday and the timings include morning 10 AM to 1 PM and 2 PM to 5 PM.
