Solan is an awe-inspiring destination with a fine blend of culture, forts, temples, churches, religion, history and art. Located on the slopes of Himachal Pradesh, one can explore myriad trekking trails to the peaks of Himalayas. The Karol Tibba and the Meteol Tibba are two famous picturesque peaks one can explore. Deriving its name from Shoolini Devi, the presiding deity of this region, Solan serves as a gateway to other hill stations such as Kasauli, Kalka and Chail. The Shoolini Mata temple is a must-visit if you want to witness carnival-like celebrations. If you are a bookworm, then don’t forget to explore the Motilal Nehru Central State Library – an erstwhile library with a classic book collection. Take a stroll down the Mall Road for some delicious Solan cuisine.
