Especially the tourist places with historical heritage can bring a lot of joy as they take us to the historical times through monuments, palaces and many more attractions.
Dalhousie, McLeodganj Dharmashla Trip can be a fantastic option as it takes us to beautiful mountains of Himalaya and the historic time during the British rule in India.
In 19th century, Raja of Chamba was the ruler of beautiful kingdom. British bought the land around Dalhousie in 1853 as per records. British people constructed a hill resort and sanatorium for their own use especially in summer as the capital city of Delhi has considerably unpleasantly hot climate during summer. After the construction, the town has seen a drastic growth and a municipality were founded here in 1867. After some years Dalhousie became an economical and affordable alternative for Shimla, which is now the capital of Himachal Pradesh.
Dalhousie is also popular because famous Indian personalities during the freedom fight such as Rabindranath Tagore who is the author of Indian national anthem, and Sub hash Chandra Bose who was the commander of Azad Hind Sena, an army built for freedom of India, have spent some days in the location.
A naturally beautiful place called Khajjar, which is famous as India’s mini Switzerland is also adjacent to Dalhousie. That is why the place attracts tourists from many parts of the country and even from abroad. It is famous for the dense forests of Deodar trees and snowlines on the upper side of hills.
Another famous attraction at Khajjar is an ancient temple that was built in 12th century. This has wooden images of five Pandava brothers during Mahabharata period. Apart from this tourists can visit another naturally beautiful place called Chamba situated on the banks of river Ravi. This place was ruled by a royal family and contains various historical monuments and palaces that are known for their extra ordinary architecture.
Dharmashala Tour takes us to a well-known Buddhist temple which is the residence of famous 14th Dalai Lama who is the religious leader of Tibetan Buddhists that have migrated to this place during their conflict with China. Tibet is now a Chinese part that they have conquered by around 1950. However the fight for freedom is still on as Tibetan Buddhists wish to have their independent land.
Dharmashala is also famous for Tibetan culture, temples monuments and Handicrafts. Thus we can get an opportunity to get closer with a different culture on Indian land.
