The Land of Fascinating Vistas
Kasauli, the land of superb vistas, is a charming hill station. Enveloped in a colonial influence, Kasauli is a wonderful town developed by the British before India gained its independence. It is located only 35 km from Shimla and is easily accessible. There is a legend attached to its creation. It was here that Lord Hanuman stopped while jumping from hill to hill, in his search for the Sanjeevani herb. Later a Hanuman Mandir was built at the spot where Lord Hanuman is believed to have rested his feet. The narrow winding roads of Kasauli are flanked by lush green flora. Like other hill stations of Himachal Pradesh, Kasauli is also endowed with immense natural beauty. Stroll through the narrow paths of Kasauli where you will not only enjoy the scenic beauty but will also get an opportunity to listen to the melodious chirping of some wonderful birds. The churches and bungalows built during the British rule in India are some of the amazing attractions of Kasauli.
