Dalhousie, the hill station in Western Himalayas

by on November 21, 2007

Dalhousie in Western Himalayas in Himachal Pradesh is the only hill station that is not too famous in India as its abandoned remains, disowned by Lahore due to the Partition. It is a beautiful weekend destination from Delhi. I took a walk around its three Malls and wooded loops such as Potreyn Road, Bakrota and Moti tibba hills but is dull. Its five churches and British style country houses are now converted into hotels. I think its still one of the places where people like Rabindra Nath Tagore can make their own private discovery. I discovered it on foot.

dalhousie-stjohn-church.jpgOf the five churches the oldest is dedicated to St. John and is situated near the GPO. It contains the 19th centaury stained glass painting of Jesus flanked by st. John and St. Peter. The best preserved church is the one attached to Sacred Heart School; here the Chapel has an old Mannborg piano.

There is one of the oldest Tibetan settlements just off 3km off Gandhi chowk. In the 1950’s Nehru offered this place as an asylum to the Tibetans fleeing the Chinese invasion of their homeland. Today, besides 50 odd families, it houses a school, a small prayer hall and the Tibetan Handicrafts Centre. There were mainly carpets and prayer mats available here.

The most visitors to Dalhousie go to Satdhara and Panchpullah, it is said that Satdhara dalhousie-panchpula.jpg has seven tiny streams and Panchpullah is named after 5 wooden bridges that existed in the past here, is also home to a monument erected in the memory of freedom fighter Sardar Ajit Singh.

But I enjoyed my 3km walk on the Upper Bakrota Loop around Ahla which covers all the nice views. And I also saw the and stopped by Snow don ‘Residence where Rabindra Nath Tagore is said to have stayed
