Places to stay near Naggar Castle Road

There is also a beautiful castle in Naggar that has legends associated with a former King of the Kullu region, and the castle has featured in a handful of Bollywood movies as well. Most other places that were recommended to us to eat at for shut. However, the next morning, we did walk up to the Roerich Art Gallery, which was on the other side of the town. Before that, we also happened to witness a major religious ceremony, where the idol of Sheshnag was brought into the castle after a gap of nine years (according to locals).
Krishna Temple: Across the Chaaki Nala, through fields of cabbage, this walk takes you up the village slopes. A shepherd dog joins in, as you meander along forest roads. Treading up the forsaken stream, resplendent with pebbles and rocks, watch sun rays shimmer on snow/capped peaks. Your path collides with the age-old, stone engraved Krishna Temple of Naggar. Its priest claims a holy legiance to the Pandavas. Shaded by a wooden parapet, its ancient stone walls cradle the idols of the gods. A bunch of daffodils attracts your eye, as you walk back through the shaded valley.
This impressive wooden castle was built in 1460 and offers spectacular valley views.
