Built by the British during the hey day of the Raj, Kasauli is a charming little town that seems to exist in a time warp, reminiscent of a by-gone era. Its colonial ambience is reinforced by cobbled paths, quaint shops, gabled houses with beautiful facades and scores of neat little gardens and orchards.
Mixed forests of chir-pine, Himalayan oak and huge horse chestnuts surround Kasauli. Its narrow roads wind around the hillsides and offer some magnificent views. Kasauli is one of the quietest hill stations due to traffic being restricted on the main roads.
Monkey Hill, the highest point in Kasauli, has a small temple on the top and incredible views of the region.
According to a legend, at the end of Ramayana when Lord Hanuman was returning from the Himalayas after obtaining Sanjivany Booty or the Magical Herb, his foot touched the hill and thus the top of hill is in a foot shape.
