Khajjiar, a beautiful hill resort in Himachal Pradesh, is fondly called as the â€œMini Switzerland of Indiaâ€ for its picturesque topography and enormously delightful landscapes. Located between Dalhousie and Chamba valley, itâ€™s a striking meadow where tourists get utmost a calm existence and ambience from the maddening existence of a metropolis. Saucer-shaped with wide stretches of seven emerald-turf meadows encircled by charmingly hilly terrains, pine and deodar trees, Khajjiar is truly a heaven onto earth for its all-round scenic charm.
Besides scenic beauty, Khajjiar invites tourists for other attractions as well and among them, the Khajinag temple (Golden Devi Temple) ranks a place. This 12th century temple adorns a golden dome and spire that gives it the distinct identity of â€œGolden Devi Templeâ€. The Wooden chamber with intricate carvings, along with depictions of mythical tales, makes it a top tourist attraction in the town.
Tourists here savour the natural beauty all around and along with that, they get to enjoy other sightseeing as well. The Khajjiar Lake is another popular place for its saucer-shaped meadow, which is absolutely lush green and has a floating island. The 9-hole Golf Course remains a major attraction of Khajjiar, which draws almost everyone who takes a visit here.
