Dharamshala is a popular hill station in Himachal Pradesh that attracts a large number of tourists annually. It is the principal township of the Kangra district and was formerly known as Bhagsu. This hill station boasts of a thick cover of oak and conifer trees along with snow-capped mountains on three sides. During the British rule, Lord Elgin (Viceroy from 1862-63) was mesmerised by the beauty of the destination as it reminded him of his home in Scotland. It is said that Lord Elgin requested the British Monarch to make Dharamshala the summer capital of India. It received a major setback in the year 1905, when it was devastated by a massive earthquake. Mcleodganj and Forsytheganj, two popular suburbs of Dharamshala, served as health resorts and resting places for British rulers. It attracts a lot of tourists all year due to its scenic beauty and culture. The facilities and infrastructure in Dharamshala are other factors that make it a favourable tourist destination. While visiting this north Indian city, travellers can be assured of complete comfort, entertainment and rejuvenation. The serene surroundings, pleasant climate and picturesque landscape make this hill station a complete summer holiday spot.
