Himachal Pradesh Places to see CULTURE


The tough Climate of Himachal has made the inhabitants of the place extremely clement and perseverant. The kind hospitality of the people is their laudable achievement and their culture is thus interesting to observe and easy to absorb.

Dwellers of Himachal have an affinity for Ghee and in most of their food items it is used in excessive quantity. Non vegetarian dishes are a popular eatable in the state a n Lamb intestines are a delicacy among anon-vegetarian items. Dham is a festive food of Himachal that is prepared in a pompous way. A special sect of Brahmin is only allowed to make Dham and the elaborate process of cooking takes almost a day to prepare the dish. Deserts of Himachal have assorted items and sweet rice is the prime among them. The use of jaggery and dry fruits is noted in deserts. 

The rich craftsmanship of Himachali people is evident from the wealth of native handicrafts of the state. The Pahari Miniature Painting is a brilliant craft that evolved during 17th to 19th century. The Rajputs were believed to tbe great connosiures of the art of miniature painting. The influnceof Buddhist art has gifted the state Thankas. This art has migrated from Tibet and Kashmir and tourist can witness some of the brilliant works of art on the Thankas displayed at Monasteries in Himahcal.

This will be a wrong guess to state that calm people have less inclination of celebrations. Himachal is an example of this misconception as several extravagant fairs and Festivals are conducted here. The cities Shimla, Kullu and Mnali are the prime focus for tourists during the festivals like Winter Carnival, Lavi Fair, Summer Fairs etc. During international Himalaya Festvival, halda festival and Kullu Dassera the state comes to a festive mood and the native people are found in their best spirit and attire.
