    Actually the residents of the town are also emotionally attached with the palace as many schemes like drinking gravity water scheme, Ranital garden, sewerage and Nahan foundry etc were the contribution of the princely state Sirmaur. Even the actual temple of Nagar deity Khedda has also been located inside the palace. The doors of the Royal palace were closed since decades for people but since last one year Udai Parkash was taking keen interest to start the activities in the palace. Few months back Udai Parkash had also announced that the temple of Nagar deity would be opened for the residents of the town once in a week.
