Dainkund Peak -NOW THAT'S WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT "MOUNTAIN CHARM". We reached Dainkund Peak by 10:30 am , just 15 mins ride from our hotel. ; as an old saying in ancient days Mata(Goddess) protecting the entire valley from witches.It's a trekking (almost took 2 hrs), leading to Pohlani Mata Devi temple at the top of the peak Dainkund Peak known to be highest peak in Dalhousie. Its best place to view the entire valley, if lucky one can view Khajjiar toooo from the peak ; though the day we visited it was quite a fogging day. Trekking started with quite a number of steps making our heart beats faster, but all our efforts paid off. As we were approaching the peak to the temple the weather became cold; we could actually see the fog moving from down to up to the hill, making the temple disappeared in fog. Did the darshan(Worshiped Goddess) and climbed to the peak for more surprises............... :) I wish I had more time in hand to praise this endless and timeless beauty.One is left with this beautiful smile................. a beautiful memory :)

St. John's Church
Built in 1863, St Johns Church is much like the Roman Catholic Church in England. This monument was constructed during the British rule by Protestant missionaries and is of much religious and historical importance to the hill town of Dalhousie. The architecture is that of a typical British structure as it is made of brick and wood. The church is located in Gandhi Chowk and is a mere 2 kilometres away from the Dalhousie bus stand. Many tourists come to visit this holy shrine all round the year. Next to the church is a library that houses a great number of books and records for visitors to read and go through.
