Versailles Chateau is undergoing renovations on many fronts (long-term project); this particular renovation undertaking is very evident.

This isn't in the usual flow of traffic, but make sure that you don't miss it when you visit Versailles! So beautiful and ornate. Also, if you watch the Versailles series you'll recognize the chapel from many scenes.
