Detailed Sightseeing

Kasauli :

  • Christ Church Kasauli - Christ Church was previously an Anglican church and one of the oldest churches in North India (built in mid 19th Century). This is a prominent landmark of Kasauli.

  • Mall Area - The town centre in Kasauli is not a patch on Shimla in terms of experience but still a popular area for tourists to visit in the evening. There are a few shops over half a km.

  • Walks in Kasauli - Walking is perhaps the best way to visit all monuments and view points of Manali while soaking the overall experience of an idyllic laidback hill station especially with restrictions on vehicular movements. Mankey point is 3.5 kms from town centre is perhaps the most popular walk even though it has a few steep gradients in between. Kasuali Club, Baptist Church and Lord Hanuman Temple at Mankey point are popular stops for walkers. Honeymooners and genuine walking ehtnusiasts skip the regular walk routes and take more less trodden trails in the woods. The area around is full of thick Deodar and Pine forestsand therefore excellent for leisurely and moderately difficult half day walks.

  • Sunrise Point / Sunset Point - Sunrise and Sunset points are Popular view points at 1 km from town centre

  • Baba Balaknath Temple - A Temple set on a Hilltop dedicated to Baba Balak Nath, a devotee of Lord Shiva, at 3 kms from town centre.

  • Mankey Point - A view point at 4 kms from town centre. Its also home to a Lord Hanuman Temple associated with mythology linked to epic Ramayana tale.

  • Shirdi Saibaba Mandir - Shirdi Saibaba temple (1989) located at half km away from Garkhal has a burning flame in this temple and is visited by devotees and tourists all through the year.
