Kasauli

Some time ago I had the opportunity to visit Kasauli. A sleepy little hill town in the state of Himachal Pradesh. It is quite near where I live. This is a town that seems to have an air about it. In the past it was a place for the British to escape the heat of the plains in the summer. The architecture there is very colonial and the buildings seem to  be alive. It is quite unlike any other place that I have been to in the hills. Some very famous people have lived and still do maintain residences there including the noted Indian write in English Khushwant Singh. I had the chance to take some pictures while I was there and I am sharing these with you all here. Since my last visit to Kasauli that was in February of 2007 there seem to be many changes especially in the area below the town. The road leading up to Kasauli from Chandigarh is certainly way more polluted than ever and you can breathe in the diesel while you drive up there. It also seems that there is more construction activity there now. I think that in the next decade or so this town will probably be lost because when I compare it with the last decade the air quality is noticibaly worse. So enjoy the photos and if you like them you can always click on this link to see more.
