Sheltered in the foothills of the looming Himalayas, the village of Pragpur feels untouched by time. Founded in the 16th century in memory of Princess Prag Dei of the Jaswan Royal family, and later the settlement for the prosperous Kuthiala Sood community, its heritage is recalled in cobbled lanes lined with old-word havelis and European-style villas.
Stroll the streets to see the well-preserved edifices of a faded era, each one attempting to outdo the other, from the 200-year-old decorative Chaujjad Haveli all the way to the sky-blue water tank at the very heart of the village. You’ll find carved doors, stuccowork and gabled roofs that wouldn’t look out of place in a Renaissance painting. Browse craftwork and trinkets under signature wood structures where a steady pace of life unfolds. Or explore on a bike to the nearby forest to chase those liberating mountain views. You could dedicate a whole afternoon by the river armed with a hamper and dipping your feet in the sun-dappled stream.
There are many dynamic ways in which to explore this fascinating village and its surrounds. Just talk to our destination clued-up connoisseurs.
