About Dalhousie

Dalhousie is a hill station full of colonial charm. It is spread out over the five hills and the town is named after the 19th century British Governer General Lord Dalhousie. It was established in 1854 as a summer retreat for British troops and bureaucrats. The town's varying altitude shades it with a variety of vegetation that includes stately grooves of pines, oaks, deodars and flowering rhododendrowns. Rich in colonial architecture, the town preserves some beautiful churches. Scottish and Victorian architecture is prevalent in the bungalows and churches in the town. Located on the western edge of the Dhauladhar mountain range of the Himalayas, it is surrounded by snow-capped peaks. This hill region is a repository of ancient Hindu culture, art, temples, and handicrafts preserved under the longest-running single dynasty since the mid 6th century. Chamba is the hub of this culture. Bharmour, the ancient capital of this kingdom, is home to the Gaddi and Gujjar tribes and has 84 ancient temples dating from the 7th to 10th century AD.
