Bhajji State was a princely state in India during the period of the British Raj. Its capital was Suni. The former princely state is now part of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh.


Bhajji state founded at an uncertain date before the 19th century. The state was occupied by Nepal from 1803 to 1815.[1] On 21 September 1815 it became a British protectorate.

In 1947, at the time of the Partition of India, Bhajji's ruler acceded to the newly independent Union of India.


The rulers of Bhajji State belonged to the Pal dynasty of Rajputs and ruled with the title 'Rana'.[2]
