Khajjiar

 

Khajjiar a location at a distance of 2000 metres, 22 km. from Dalhausie and 23 km. from Chamba. A little out of Dalhousie is a beautiful, charming retreat that makes an ideal day excursion or even an overnight visit. Far from any major town, this tranquil spot has a small lake in the centre, on which is a floating island. Fed by slim streams, this small lake rests in the centre of the large glade of Khajjiar.

The glade and the lake are held sacred to Khajjinag - after whom the place is named. Khajjiar has the thick forest of the Kalatop sanctuary surrounding its soft green grass. It is 1.5 km long and 1 km wide. It is surrounded by cedar (deodar) forest. This is like a magical paradise.

A temple dedicated to Khajjinag is also located there. Khajjiar is also called "Mini Switzerland" of India. The lake remains full of water in all the seasons and requires no rain water for survival. Khajjiar is sometime also spelt as Khajyar or Khajiyar. Our expert staff will be with you as a guide from Pathankot to every place in Dalhousie, Khajjiar and Chamba.

Khajinag Temple : Khajjiar, known as one of the most charming spots in the Himalayas, derives its name from its ancient, golden-domed temple of Khajjinag. The 12th-century Khajinag temple is a small shrine dedicated to the local Goddess or the Devi. This temple is also known as the Golden Devi temple, as it is adorned with a golden dome and spire. Pilgrims visiting the Chamba valley often come to this temple.

The Lake : Set in the rolling green turf is a small lake. One gets out of the car to go to the lake but the ground seems to give way. The earth is 'spongy' due to dense growth of weed called 'vacha' over which dust has formed a thick layer of earth.
