The Chapel is nice, but the story of the megalomaniac king and his behavior in the Chapel is the best part. Make sure you get the audio guide for free at the entrance of Versailles.

Sheer opulence in white and gold - that's the scene that greets the visitor when standing behind a barrier and peering into the ground floor of the chapel.

One can imagine kings attending prayer in the upper gallery here. It is the first "room" we saw inside the Chateau of Versailles.

Very impressive, but you can only see it from the entrance, because there is no access to it. It compliments the visit to the chateau with the hall of mirrors.
