"Chamba district of Himachal Pradesh"
Chamba

Chamba offers a variety of scenic beauty to the tourist. It touches the fringe of the Shivaliks and has the three well defined snowy ranges, the Dhauladhar constituting the outer Himalayas, the Pir Panjal or the mid Himalayas and the Zanskar range or the inner Himalayas. The river Ravi associated with melodic folk songs flows at the feet of Chamba town. Its cultural heritage, an iota of it displayed in Bhuri Singh Museam, its dances, Dandaras and Gurai, its folk paintings done in embroidery, its ‘chukh’ -  a pickle of chillies- and its ‘chappals’ -  all have that special Chamba appeal. Dalhousie, a tiny town, with the colonial charm and modernity contrasts with the ancient traditions and folkish lives of the people in the rest of Chamba but the natural ambience of the District merges the two well.

Chowgan: A grassy lawn than one km in length and about seventy five meters wide around which the town is spread.


Bhuri Singh Museum: Raja Bhuri Singh ruled Chamba between 1904 and 1919. This museum has been named after his and displays rare artifacts that reflect the rich culture of Chamba.

It has capturing wood carvings and an attractive metallic idol of Devi, 54 inch in height, constructed by an artist by the name of Gugga in the 8th century. Visit to the temple and picnicking afterwards is rewarding.

Bharmour: If Chamba is counted in the history of the North-western Indian art and craft, then Bharmour is its exhibition ground.

Exemplary shrines are those of Lakshna Devi, Narshigh Dev and Lord Ganesh.
