Chehni Kothi | Historic Fort-Tower & Temple

Chehni Kothi is located in Kullu Manali, 60 kilometres from Kullu, 7 kilometres from Banjar, and 66 kilometres from Mandi. Chehni is also well-known for its twin temple towers.

Chehni Kothi is a 1500-year-old structure that served as King Raja Rana Dhadhia’s fortified residence. Chehni is 57 kilometres from Kullu by road, followed by a three-kilometre uphill trek. The fort was partially damaged during the 1905 earthquake. The fort is currently 60 feet tall. The restoration of this temple was aided by a restoration programme carried out by the locals.

Chehni’s tower temple is the tallest structure of its kind in the Western Himalayas. The Bhagwati temple, also known as the Chehni tower, is a nine-tiered structure with four storeys of the stone structure holding the temple’s top five tiers. A wooden staircase is installed near the entrance and can access the temple’s upper levels. The tower’s intermediate point is a projected balcony 12 metres above the ground. The idols of a few gods are placed on the top storey.

Across the street from this temple is the Shringa Rishi temple, the presiding deity of the Tirthan-Banjar valley. This tower stands about 30-35 metres tall, and only locals are permitted to enter the temple. An open courtyard separates these two towers.

Raghupur Fort | Historical Landmark | Jalori Pass

Raghupur Fort is a historic site thought to have been built by Mandi rulers to protect themselves from invasion. The trek to Raghupur Fort begins with a 3-kilometre ascent through oak and rhododendron forests from Jalori Pass. The path is lined with lush green oaks and rhododendrons, with the splendid Himalayas in the background. We hiked for about two hours from the Jalori pass to the top of Raghupur Fort.

There are only ruins here, but the top provides spectacular views of the surrounding valleys. Unfortunately, the fog was rising all around us, and the hike back down took another hour through the foggy jungle. Nevertheless, it was a heavenly experience, a very steep and vertical place to climb, full of excitement and thrill. However, when you arrive at the fort, the view is so serene and calming that you completely forget about your worldly concerns.

This beautiful meadow on top of the mountain is an excellent hike from Sojha. There are 360-degree views all around, and on a clear day, snowcapped peaks can be seen. Otherwise, it’s a unique and great place to shoot photos that are literally out of this world. However, it is possible that you will become engrossed in nature and that time will pass you by.
