Guler is a charming little town in Kangra District. Nestling in the lap of the majestic Dhauladhar, it is known for its Haripur fort. Indeed, the massive ramparts of the fort can be seen from Guler railway station. The location of the fort is picturesque and the Banganga giving it protection from three sides looks awe-inspiring from the top. Inside there are some carvings but they have blurred with time. Cunningham and other travelers note in their travel accounts that Haripur was once the cradle of Kangra paintings, and the fort was rich with carvings, sculptures and paintings. The fort was built by Raja Hari Chand of Kangra.
Location: 55 Kms, from Dharamshala.
