Solan Tourism & Travel Guide

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.

Our first halt was at the Dagshai Jail Museum where the Irish Catholic soldiers of 1st battalion of Connaught Rangers who mutinied against the british in 1920 were brought to be executed. Mahatma Gandhi also voluntarily spent a night in jail to provide moral support and show solidarity to the Irish cause. Nathuram Godse is also rumoured to have spent time there in 1949. Those 45 minutes were full of knowledge,fun and experience.

The capital city of India is a glorious concoction of the old and the new. Temples that are centuries old, archaic Muslim quarters, and modern residencies, all exist alongside each other. Home to over a crore people, Delhi’s tourism is a treasure trove of historic gems, gardens, museums and a thriving food culture. Travel to the metropolis for the vibrant bazaars of Chandni Chowk that give way to Lutyens’ New Delhi, that is the pulse of the city. Among the numerous places to visit in Delhi city, for an insight into the magnificent Mughal era, go to the 16th century Humayun’s Tomb, the towering sandstone mosque of Jama Masjid, and experience the sound and light show at Red Fort. Tourists can spend mornings at the extravagant Akshardham Temple and evenings at the Hazrat Nizam-ud-din Dargah (shrine) that boasts of sufi music and delicious kebabs. Another popular attraction of Delhi city is its pulsating markets that from baubles to handicrafts, sell everything you can possibly think of. Those who have travelled to Delhi for its particular brand of food, won’t be disappointed. From hole-in-the-wall eateries and local student cafes in North Delhi to lavish restaurants and bars in South Delhi, there is no dish or cuisine you won’t find here. A huge incentive for Delhi’s tourism is its variety of public transport, wherein the Delhi Metro is the cheapest and easiest way to get around the city.
