Many places of historic, religious and cultural importance are within easy reach. With its equitable climate, easy access, safe passage and rich flora and fauna, Pragpur and its surroundings offers an ideal location for village tourism. The Garli – Pragpur heritage site is one which is very zealously protected by the people here. The buildings here date back to a far back era and the practices are also of the bygone era.
