The mountain state of Himachal Pradesh, located in the northern part of India with Shimla as its capital, offers numerous tourism opportunities and is quite a popular haunt for both leisure and adventure tourists. Before Himachal Pradesh came under British control in the middle of the 19th century, it was ruled divided into various princely states ruled by princes whose families have been residents and rulers of the state since ages. Under the British Raj, Kangra District was part of the British province of Punjab, and the princely states, then known as the Shimla Hill States, were under the authority of Punjab.
In the early 1930s, the Punjab States Agency was created, and the Punjab Hill States Agency, which included most of the princely states in present-day Himachal Pradesh, was separated from Punjab States Agency in 1936. The heritage hotels of Himachal Pradesh therefore, as can easily be surmised from the history of the state, are properties that once belonged to the royal families of the state.

The palaces, now heritage hotels always occupy the best property as far as location is concerned at that particular place. Nestled in seclusion with the luxury of a mind blowing view and serene surroundings, the heritage hotels in Himachal Pradesh offers all the luxury and comfort you need at the heart of the mighty Himalayas.
