Kangra Tourism

Kangra is the most popular district in Himachal Pradesh, a northern state of India. The Kangra town is the former capital of the Chand Dynasty. Located on the foothill of the Dhauladhar range of the Himalayas, the charming landscape and its ancients temples have made Kangra a sought after tourist destination. The Kareri Lake formed from the melting of the Dhauladhar range is a beautiful site to visit. The holy pilgrimage to Brajeshwari Temple in Kangra is one of 51 Shakti Peethas in India and is dedicated to Goddess Shakti. The ancient Baijanath Temple is a popular temple of Lord Shiva located in this district. The Kangra Fort which is in ruins now had once witnessed the grandeur and riches of an empire and numerous invasions. The breathtaking view on the trails of the Indrahar Pass trek and Dhauladhar range trek are surely a treat to the eyes of the onlookers. The Jwala Devi Temple is a holy shrine to the Hindus where 9 eternal flames are worshipped as form of Goddess Shakti. The 10th century built Masrur temples are a complex of 15 rock–cut temples often referred to as the Himalayan Pyramids. Other important places to visit in the district are Dharmasala– the home of the Tibetan Spiritual Guru Dalai Lama, Taragarh Palace, Judge’s court in Pragpur and beautiful Palampur known for its tea plantations.

Kangra is well connected by roads with major cities of north India. The nearby railway station is Pathankot which is 87 kms from Kangra. The nearby airport is Gaggal which is 11kms from the Kangra town.
