About Garli and Masroor
DPC brings you one more breathtaking trip to Garli and Masroor Rock Cut Temple in the month of July.
Garli is a delightful destination for anyone looking to get away from Delhi over a long weekend or simply to explore Himachal Pradesh’s countryside. Garli has been designated a heritage zone by the Ministry of Tourism, HP.
A walk around Garli is like stepping back in time. Armed with a handy map that details the sights of interest, wander down cool alleys and lanes bordered by thick greenery to discover broken down two-storied mansions. Even in their state of disrepair it is obvious that they must have been glorious in their day. If houses could speak, these structures would have fascinating tales to tell.
There is hardly any other Indian hamlet with such stunningly diverse styles of architecture on display amongst the mansions, temples and sarais, all of which stand testimony to the majestic existence Garli that once had. Garli is a classic example of collaborative town planning, vision & foresight of its founders.
