WHAT TO EXPECT

Embark on a splendid journey to Kangra, a famous district of Himachal Pradesh located on the southern escarpment of the Himalayas. In earlier times, it was known by the name Nagarkot.

A major highlight of this place is the magnificent Kangra Fort, located 20 kilometres from Dharamshala. It was constructed by the royal Rajput family of the Katoch dynasty. It is the largest fort in the Himalayas and perhaps the oldest dated fort in India.

Near the fort we visit the famous Shree Vajreshwari Devi Mandir. It is acclaimed as one of the 51 Shakti Peeths, and is a popular pilgrimage site for devotees. The temple is surrounded by a stone wall and also has a small temple dedicated to Lord Bhairav.

Next, we move on to visit the famous Hindu temple, Jwala Ji, where an eternal flame burns in a natural cave. As per mythology, many believe that Goddess Sati's tongue fell here and is now visible in the form of the flame.
