Chail is probably best known for its cricket ground; commissioned by the Maharaja of Patiala in 1893, it is the highest in the world at 2,444 metres above sea level. Nowadays, the cricket ground is used by the students at Chail Military School; a building also constructed by the Maharaja. During their vacations, the ground is transformed into a polo ground. Other notable attractions include Chail Palace: the Maharaja’s summer retreat; which boasts beautiful architecture, and Kali ka Tibba temple, which attracts Hindu pilgrims from across the globe and trekkers keen to take in views across the Shivalik Ranges.
