Whilst in Dharamshala we visited Kangra and its fort, an amazing structure on a hilltop which according to history remained undefeated by the Moguls. There are a lot of steps to walk up so if you are less mobile, do give this a miss. The views from the top of the fort are amazing. We also saw some ancient carvings of deities etched into stone. A special place to visit steeped in history.

A ruined fort which was restored after 1905 earthquake and it was build by Rajput.
We hired a audio guide for explain but vain hope due to non functioning.
The location of the fort on a hilltop adds to its charm.There is a bit of walking to be done to reach top of the Fort from where you’ll get beautiful view of the Dhauladhar ranges.
The fort is  protected monument under Archiological Survey of India. Entry tickets of Rs.25/-.

A place with historical importance has been ignored. The place is located at the confluence of the banganga and Manjhi rivers and the fort overlooks the vast Kangra Valley. The fort was conqured by Muhmud Ghazni in 1009 CE. The same was under british occupation when Maharaja Ranjeet Singh was defeated by them. being one of the centrally protected monument the same has been neglected even when it comes to basic facilties like Toilet. Govt of HP can start a light and sound show to show its mantle to the world.

Lovely views from the top, as you admire the steep Kangra Valley from all sides. The fort itself is a unique piece of history, though I have been more impressed with the ones I saw in Rajasthan. There is also a nice museum here!

A pleasant hour spent walking round Changra Fort, and there are some ancient relics and stone carvings remaining. Lovely views from the top. It is not crowded. An hour is enough time to see everything.

One of the really nice things we did on a holiday to this region - a must-do in Kangra. But it has to be done with the audio guide which is available in the museum above / or please enquire at the ticket counter. Amazing insight into the history of the place - the audio guide is extremely well put together - a real value addition. Great views on a clear winter day added to the overall great experience.

This was the second time we went into this Fort with a few of our friends to show them around. The fort is well maintained and has multiple vantage points that provide good views and photo shoot opportunities. There is a provision of potable and free drinking water at the top. The audio guide is available at the ticket counter and one is advised to avail of the same for a fruitful experience of the fort. There is a private museum of the kings adjacent to the fort and one should visit this museum also for a complete experience.
