Kasauli, a serene hill station, a quaint little town, time seems to have stopped still here. Resplendent with spectacular beauty and panoramic views, Kasauli is one of those few destinations developed by the British when it was at the zenith of its rule. This charming hill-station, oozing old-world charisma is covered with tall Deodar, wild flowers, rhododendrons, wild roses, flame of the forest, and flowering Kichnar in summer and is a popular point for bird-watchers. This town has yet not lost its old colonial charm, and this will be evident to you when you watch the cobbled paths , old fashioned shops , gabled houses
with their charming facades and scores of tiny well maintained little gardens and orchards thronged with chir-pine, Himalayan Oaks and huge horse chestnuts.
Kasauli is one of the small towns developed by the British during the 'hey day' of the empire, and reached by a branch road from the Kalka-Shimla road. The quite beautiful hill-station of Kasauli has a Pastur Institute that produces the anti-rabies vaccine against mad dog-bite and, at the same time, treats victims who have fallen prey to the dead disease, Hydrophobia. The institute in Kasauli set up in 1900, is the oldest in India, taking care of pet, police and army dogs as well as their masters.
Places For Visit
The highest point in Kasauli called Monkey point is just 4-km from the Kasauli bus stand. The Monkey Point commands an excellent view of the distant plains of Chandigarh region and the river Satluj, tracing a silvery trail through the scene. A small temple is also situated on the top of the hill, which is dedicated to Lord Hanuman. According to a legend, at the end of Ramayana when Lord Hanuman was returning from the Himalayas after obtaining Sanjivany Booty or the Magical Herb, his foot touched the hill and thus the top of hill is in a foot shape. On a clear and starry night the gorgeous view of Chandigarh can be seen from the Monkey Point.
