    Hello members. I've heard about Kasaul and it's scenic beauty. Apart from this is there anything that is worth seeing in that area, like some sort of monument or historic place. Also I've heard that this place has some indigenous Jewish heritage of sorts. Jews are interesting people and I would love to meet them.

  • As mentioned by you there are many places for visiting in this place. This is a good time for visiting that area. But please think before finalising as COVID 19 is still not completely out and it is better to postpone tours these days.
    The following are the places which are historical and you can visit them during your trip there.
    1. Gurkha Fort: This is a historical place. It is located in Parwanoo in Himachal Pradesh. This fort is around 16 km away from Parwanoo. This heritage fort is surrounded by a dense forest. It is 4500 feet above sea level, A very good place for photography. You can go there in the afternoons.
    2. Christ Church: This is constructed by the British in 1853. There are many pine and deodar trees around this church. The ambience and the scenic environment are at their best. The architecture of the church is a feast to our eyes.
    3. Gurudwara Sri Guru Nanakji: It is an old Sikh's place of worship. It is situated on the outskirts of Kasauli. This place is having facilities to stay also. This place offers food to devotees who come from far off places.

    Gazing at the beautiful mountains and unwinding in the lap of nature is what one can do while being here.

    Kasol is a village in Parvati valley which is often referred to as mini Israel because of the in-habitation of Israelis in the region.

  • I hope you are preparing before taking the trip keeping in mind all the essentials especially in this Corona Era.
    There are many places to visit over there but some of them where you should visit are -

    Krishna Bhawan Temple - This is a very ancient temple that is worth seeing, if you go, you must visit this temple in some special way.

    Manikaran Sahib, - Gurdwaras are found everywhere in the country, even at this place, Manikaran Sahib is one of them, you will be able to see all the legislation which are there in the other gurdwaras, but its beauty is very different.

    Tosh - a small but special village to watch.

    Bhuntar - is a small town situated in the Parvati valley but Ghana forest is found here where you find yourself very close to nature.

    Sunset Point - Although you must have seen many sunset points before, but here it is something different because watching the sunset from the height of the hills is a very happy moment.

    Do not forget to go to the Mall Road - Whenever we go to any other city or tourist place, we all do a common job and that is shopping, then the road will surely go for the householders and for taking all kinds of items.

    Have a great trip ...
