About

Kullu is a city in the Himachal Pradesh state of India. Kullu Valley was earlier called Kulantpeeth. Kulanthpeeth literally means the end of the habitable world. The Kullu Valley has been the Valley of the Gods in India. Kullu is a beautiful tourist destination situated in Himachal Pradesh. Its beauty and greenery have been attracting tourists for years. Situated on the banks of the Vij river, this place is famous for its colorful Dussehra celebrated here. There is also a temple of Raghunathji built in the 17th century, which is a major pilgrimage center for Hindus. Known as the Silver Valley, this place is not only famous for cultural and religious activities but also for adventure sports. The Valley of Kullu is also known as the Valley of the Gods. During the spring season, a place like Kullu becomes wonderful. When pink and white flowers bloom all around here, it is difficult to describe in words the sight that is present. The bright colors of Rhodendron flowers are seen scattered all over the slopes as far as the eye can be seen. When autumn comes, the blue sky looks very clear. By the month of December the greenery is gone, but even now the tall and tall deodar trees in the forest stand with their heads raised. When winter comes, a white sheet of snow is laid on the slopes of the mountains. There is no doubt that this is the happiest place in the Western Himalayas. It was also called Kulantpeeth in ancient times due to it being considered as the last frontier of human settlements. But it is mentioned in the epics-Ramayana, Mahabharata and Vishnu Purana by this name.
