Unique oportunity to learn about our surroundings. This village is a tribal village inhabited by Gaddi tribe and nomadic gujjars. It is among the oldest villages in chamba district and the Indian subcontinent.
The temple of one of the local deities dates back to 7th century AD which has been designated as a protected monument/ site by the national archaelogical survey of India and both students from all streams be it archaelogy, architecture ,anthropology, geology visit this region for research. The pandavas are believed to have stayed in this village during their exile from where it gets its old name Kuntapuri (named after their mother kunti). So for a cultural exchange or experience this place has a lot more to offer.
