MINI SNAPSHOTS- GOOD FENCES AND SKYWATCH



This post is part of: Good Fences, Sky Watch


This picture is taken at a cottage in Dagshai, which is owned by one of our friends. Here is my friend and her niece posing for me.

A small space is ensconced as a balcony with a swing and a small  improvised fountain, where water is circulated all the time. The terrace overlooks splendid scenic mountainside.

The view of the cemetery. Google image.
Dagshai has military cantonment originally established by the British rulers, because of its cool climes and picturesque beauty. It is situated at an altitude of 6000 feet. A Roman Catholic Church was built by the British here, which is still there.There is an old cemetery overlooking the lovely valley. It is said that many British soldiers are buried here. It is a tourist place because of its history and natural beauty, which has been saved from the real estate Sharks by enacting strategic regulations.
It is about 5 km uphill from Kumarhatti. It is famous for its level walks and magnificent valley views.

It has a considerable population of monkeys though.

Friends, welcome here as always!
