Nahan

Sirmaur , Himachal Pradesh

Nahan is a small and serene town in the Shivalik ranges in the Himachal Pradesh. This is a town which was established by a prince and has all the princely qualities in it with the palace and the watchtower still intact. A town that was established 400 years ago, this place still exudes the royalty that is linked to it. The name of the town comes from the word Nahar which means a lion. It is said that a saint used to live here with a lion and that is how this town was named. Nahan situated at an altitude of 932 meters, is a good base for visits to the surrounding areas viz. Renuka, Paonta Sahib, Trilokpur temple and the Suketi Fossil Park. It has a pleasant climate throughout the year and is watered by man made lake and decorated with temples and gardens. This is a place that is connected to so many that it makes a very good holiday destination, far from the city and the hustle and bustle. Nahar is abundantly blessed with not only the natural beauty of the Himalayas but also by the quaint yet princely buildings that dot the landscape of this entire town. One of the best times to visit this place is during the Bawan Dwashi. This is a festival at the end of the monsoons when fifty two idols of local gods are carried in procession to Jagannath temple where they are floated ceremoniously in a pool and are restored at midnight to their niches. A truly fascinating ceremony to watch, it shows us the different rituals that are followed in India. A very self sufficient little town, nevertheless it will delight you with whats on offer.
