Kangra-Dharamshala Tour

Daily Tour 05 Nights/06 Days
Kangra, Dharamshala

OVERVIEW:

Situated in the western part of Himachal Pradesh, spread between the Shivalik foot Hills and the Dhauladhar range, the Kangra valley is a land of gentle beauty. Nestled in the lap of Dhauladhar range of Himalayas, the valley offers a unique blend of local Pahari and Tibetan culture. We began our journey behind the ranges, wherever no engine roared louder than the wind and in the dark the moon outshone all the opposite lights.

The historic fort of Kangra was built by Bhuma Chand the founder of the Katoch Dynasty. The history of this fort is synonymous with Kangra town. At present, the fort is under the control of the Archaeological Survey of India. It was badly damaged in the 1905 earthquake. From here, continue towards Masrur. The famous Masroor temple complex lies nearly 22 km from Kangra. It lies to the north-east of the village, a rocky sandstone ridge. In the intervening portions of the rocks are sculpted a series of temples unique in the entire Himalayan region and comparable to the monolithic temples of Mahabalipuram, Ellora and Dhamnar caves.

In the center of the complex stands the principal and most intricately incised shrine – the Thakurdwara – enshrining black stone pictures of Ram, Lakshman, and mythical being.
