Chamba is surrounded on all sides by lofty hill ranges and is situated on the banks of river Ravi. It came into existence in the second half of the sixth century A.D. On expansion of the Bharmour kingdom territory, Chamba was established as main capital by Raja Sahil Singh Verma in the first half of 10th century A.D. In all there have been 67 Rajas who ruled over Chamba starting with Maru the founder of Brahmpura- Chamba kingdom and ended with Raja Lakshaman Singh. It seems to be a unique case in India where one dynasty continued to rule the state from sixth century to the present times.
