History of Kullu Dussehra

Kullu Dussehra Festival is successfully being celebrated since the 17th century, which marks its beginning on Vijaya Dashami every year and stretches up to seven days, usually in the month of October. The local king named Jagat Singh put an idol of Lord Raghunath on his throne to mark as the deity of the Kullu kingdom. This began the Dussehra celebrations in Kullu.

It is celebrated in the Dhalpur maidan located in the town of Kullu in Himachal Pradesh. The ground is located near the District Court in Kullu. The first day of the huge festival is marked with the establishment of the statue of Lord Raghunath Ji on an artistically designed chariot. The royal carriage is then pulled with the help of ropes by the local people to the various sites across the region of Maidan.

Rest of the seven days are celebrated with immense devotion and people take to worshipping the Almighty with garlands and offerings. Dussehra festival in Kullu is also embarked upon with innumerable events and programs in which individuals participate and showcase their much- appreciated talents. The onlookers are left awestruck with the rhythmic Aarti ceremony performed during the dusk and the majestic rhymes of the beating drums that tune well with folk music played by devout musicians.

      Hotel in Manali (Lotus Inn River View) is awesum but hotel in Shimla is not at all good. Overall services are good by Walk Holiday. Driver is unprofessional he didn't know the places where he have to make us visit. Memories are good but we don't get to visit much more places as it is mentioned in the broucher.

      Overall trip management was good by the travel agent.i want to specially thanks to Miss Anurandha for this memorable trip. One thing I want to add that agent should ask the traveller for the Volvo Bus they are providing because the private Volvo experience is very bad and traveller please must choose only Govt.

      Volvo stand/dropping point there is not any seating arrangement. also when return journey is started Volvo bus comfort level is low/poor as per package and money pay for package. travel agents approach is always compromising and adjustment direction. also cab agent provide different cab/drivers daily.. it's too much confusing.

    • Trip to Himachal

      Overall I had a great trip. Trip advisor vivek was very prompt with replies and helps I needed. The only problem I had was with the hotel. Even though the hotel had good views and really nice family suite. 1. The staff was really casual. 2. We had to ask 3 4 times to get our towels/ bed sheets changed. And I was there for 4 days and this happened daily. 3. Food was bad. There are no good restaurants nearby so you have to rely on hotel food and it lacks taste and is over oily. 4. We did not opt for the dinner buffet, and so when we tried ordering in room. They only provided the options they had in buffet and menu was just for show. 5. After the first night they didn't even bother to cover the food with a foil or plate while delivering it to the room. Really casual staff.
