A quiet little hill station on the slopes of the Himalayan Mountains range; picturesque vales and forests decorating the landscape. That is Dalhousie for you. Located in the state of Himachal Pradesh, Dalhousie is one of the major tourist destinations in the country. It was named after the British Governor-General Lord Dalhousie, the hill station here is known for its scenic beauty as well as the architectures. The region is known for several beautiful churches that have been built during the British rule. The tiny town exhibits charming natural beauty, blooming meadows, and serene valleys covered with pine trees. Known for historical importance as well, the city was entirely built and planned by the English after the annexation of Punjab. It served as a summer retreat of the Governor-General of India.
Its name and its laidback Himachali peace do lend themselves to the jibe Dull and Lousy, but that’s missing the point. Dalhousie retains much of the British appearance and character. Built on five hills, its colonial architecture is a window into its unique history and brings back the flavour of an earlier era.
