On your visit to Chail, you should not forget to visit Sidh Baba ka Mandir. This is site where Maharaja Bhupinder Singh initially began building the Chail Palace. As the story goes by, a saint appeared before him and asked the Maharaja to stop the construction of Palace and construct a temple on the spot instead. Maharaja obeyed the saint and the temple still lies on the same spot today.
