The craft, art and regional handicraft found here has been internationally acclaimed for its designs and skills. Apart from being a historically important place, Kangra holds revered spot among Hindu devotees, owing to the presence of renowned temples like Bajreshwari Devi, Chamunda Devi, Baijnath Shiv Temple and Jwalamukhi Temple.
