India is a country full of architectural treasures and spectacular landscapes. To the point that we sometimes forget that there are people who live in this huge country. And we are very wrong ...
Like many cities in India, Nalagarh in the state of Himachal Pradesh does not have a monument that attracts crowds of tourists. And that's good.
This does not mean that there are no historical monuments in this small town, since it has a fort. And if a city has a fort, it is because it has a history.
Nalagarh Fort has been transformed into a hotel. This phenomenon is observed in many cities, and some regret it. The transformation of a historic building into a hotel makes it lose part of its soul, but on the other hand, if it had not been reconverted, it is much more than its soul that this monument would have lost. It would probably be in ruins nowadays.
And like many cities in India, the main draw is less in the buildings and more in the people who live there. Nalagarh is no exception, and we have fond memories of the friendliness of its people.
about the place, Nalagarh:
The fort of Nalagarh around which the city developed was built in 1421. The fort is converted into a comfortable hotel.
Nalagarh is a very small town in Himachal Pradesh with only a little over 10,000 inhabitants.
Spoken comments in the film:
Nalagarh is an ordinary city in Himachal Pradesh in India. No major monuments except for the fort which has been transformed into a hotel. But in India, you don't need to have impressive temples or palaces for a city to be full of charm. It is the warmth of its inhabitants that gives Nalagarh all its charm.
The fort of Nalagarh around which the city has developed was built in 1421. The fort has been converted into a comfortable hotel. Nalagarh is a very small town in Himachal Pradesh, with only a little over ten thousand inhabitants.
At the bend of a street we heard the songs of women coming out of the first floor of an old haveli, mansion.
We invited each other and were greeted with great kindness.
What's the weather like in Nalagarh?
