Church of Scotland

Just the spot for you if the words old world, library, and architecture appeal to you. The Church of Scotland, built in 1903, is a quiet sanctuary for those in quest of lands that speak of antiquity, class yet still not intimidating visitors from all walks of life. A Protestant Church, it speaks of strong Scottish artistic sensibilities in its arched windows and deep cravings. With absolutely no alterations since its erection, except a boundary wall, the Church, also known as St. Andrews Church is extraordinarily well preserved. Don't miss!  

Hariraya Temple

India is known for the beauty it attributes to everything we have ever constructed. One of these aesthetic marvels can be found in the Hariraya Temple in Chamba. The extravagance of the Vishnu idol takes the Centre stage of all awe. It is a bronze idol covered in saffron, adorning all imaginable jewelry, from rings to armlets, kundals (earrings), crown, necklaces and what not. The great Indian deity is seen riding a chariot pulled by six horses. And if this magnificence doesn't satiate your eyes or senses, the 11th century constructed stone carved shikhara type temple displays more of such deities.

Chamera Lake

Tranquility is just a by-product of visiting Chamera Lake, as the tourists rave about how they can't get enough of the beauty. The lake and the dam are complementary to each other and add to the view.
