It was a lovely chapel and thankfully no one was inside it. You could see it from the ground level and upstairs too. But had to queue to reach the rope up and down stairs.

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. But it's only an introduction to the rest of a palace worthy of the King of France. Naturally, the main focus of the chapel is the altar, embellished with gilded bronze. The... More

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

You get two views of the chapel from open doorways on the first and second levels. What little you can see looks really nice. It's a rather large chapel, but the inside is not part of the general tour. I understand you may purchase a private guided tour of the chapel. Disappointed!
