A Blissful Sojourn

Pragpur is located in the Kangra Valley of Himachal Pradesh. Approximately 420 Kilometers from Delhi (by car), this valley witnessed the grand lineage of the oldest rulers of India. A charming little village, with its cobbled streets, green and red coloured doors and walls, slated roofs and ornamental village tank, Pragpur is also known as a ‘heritage village’.

The best place to stay is ‘The Judge’s Court’, a colonial property transformed into a Heritage Hotel. Its a 300 year old construction, speaking volumes about life of the inhabitants who once lived here. The entire place is filled with pictures of these people hung in beautiful ornamental frames. Vintage decor with high ceilings, rustic colors, decorative telephones, fountain pen, ornate timepieces, fireplace etc  transports you to olden times.

You can just wander around in the village, can shop for some traditional silver jewellery, could ask for weavers around and get hold of some woollen stoles, shawls and blankets in Scottish weaves, checks and stripes in bold colours. You can visit Kangra fort (approx. 40 km from The Judge’s court) which is considered to be the oldest fort in India. Amuse yourself with audio tour which I strongly recommend as there are no signages inside If you are a religious or spiritual person, you could also visit a few temples in the vicinity.
