Founded approximately three centuries ago and situated in the Kangra Valley lies Pragpur, India’s first national heritage village. The narrow cobbled lanes lined with small traditional mud-plastered fort-like houses are reminiscent of a medieval village. These sunbaked houses stand in close harmony with the wooden facades of other colonial style buildings. The streetscapes are full of interest and are small enough to be explored on foot with your guide. As part of your tour you will explore the large ornamental tank and the active temple nearby, where you will often find devotees chanting prayers in the early evening. The small shops cater to local people’s needs; the tailor will happily make copies of exiting clothes for you! You will also stop by the local silversmiths. You will also visit Garli, which is a local village nearby. The village itself is now quite modern but it is a good opportunity to see a village that doesn’t attract tourists.
