Sometimes a place occupies a sweet space in our hearts, courtesy of the happy memories it has created. And it becomes even better when you have no expectations from the holiday, and yet it turns out to be a moment etched in time. It was one such weekend and I wasn’t looking for anything in particular. The monsoons were slowly covering all parts of India and I felt certain that Kasauli would be pretty with the mist, fog and clouds floating around.
On a meandering and slow walk across the cobblestone streets of Kasauli, I came across The Krishna Bhawan and Temple that was established in 1926. As I entered the doors of the temple courtyard, on the opposite side was an old building used as a school. The temple looks pretty with interesting arches and on the other side is an endless view of the mountains.
Kasauli is an ideal getaway for those who love to go on endless walks. There are numerous paths that can make one get lost in nature, in all the areas like – upper mall road, lower mall road and Kasauli main market.
The pine and deodhar forests impart an exclusive sort of freshness to the air in Kasauli. And it is perhaps this reason alone that Kasauli remains a sought after destination for people wishing to retire in calm surroundings.
After walking around Kasauli for a day or two, it was time to enjoy the luxury of these views and take it slow and easy. After all holidays are meant to do as your heart desires, no?! The below photographs are all taken from our sitting space, complete with a hammock and dining table!
Any recommendations for a quaint and relaxed weekend destination from Delhi or Chandigarh? Bring it on, you guys. I feel so satisfied after making this post, back home to Jaipur for Diwali after more than a month on the road with various travel projects and assignments.
