Shimla , Himachal Pradesh

Thanedar is the fruit bowl of Himachal Pradesh. At a height of 7250 metres, the sight of apple orchards will do nothing but delight you. This is one of the places in the state in the Shimla district which is just so very beautiful that you will want to stay here forever. What with the verdant valleys that surround you and the snow capped Himalayas guarding you, there surely cannot be anything wrong with a place like this. And the apples are so very delectable that they are used to make some of the finest jams and wines that you will ever taste. Now this is a holiday that you would definitely like to have. Thanedar was the place where Samuel Stokes planted the first apple seed and the legacy of apples in India started growing. Samuel stokes is an embodiment in Thanedar. Apples rule this land. All the other blossoms are overshadowed by apple branches and sometimes so are you. But no one seems to mind as the green branches loaded with the red apple not only make your mouth water but is a sight to the sore eyes. Prime attractions in this picturesque place include an ancient St. Mary’s Church, Tani-Jubbar Lake, Parmjyotir the stone temple and Hattu Peak. Satyanand Stokes, an apple pioneer, built the stone temple in the Pahari architectural style. A nearby hillock, Barobag is attractive. The Himachali style family dwelling of the apple pioneer Satyanand Stokes, Harmony House, is on Barobag Hill. Yes it may be very dominated by apples but you are there to have a lazy vacations to take out all the aches and pains in your body and Thanedar offers you the perfect place to do so.
