10 Things to Do in Kalka That You Shouldn't Miss

December 31, 2017 Nobuko Falco

Kalka is a town in the Panchkula district of Haryana, India. The name of this town is derived from the goddess Kali. The town is situated in the foothills of the Himalayas and is a gateway to the neighbouring state of Himachal Pradesh. It is on the National Highway 22 between Chandigarh and Shimla, and it is the terminus of the Kalka-Shimla Railway. To the south of Kalka is Pinjore, and the industrial village of Parwanoo (Himachal Pradesh) is to the north on the NH 22. Industrial development has led to a continuous urban belt from Pinjore to Parwanoo, but Kalka remains largely unaffected by these developments. Nearby is Chandimandir Cantonment where the Western Command of the Indian army is based. In 2013 it has come under the jurisdiction of Panchkula Municipal Corporation and its municipal committee has been dissolved.

Pinjore Gardens

Reviewed By rahulajmera - Pune, India

The Pinjore Gardens have a nominal paid entry. Parking is available in plenty too.
The Gardens are well maintained and clean. In the morning, the Fountains were not working properly. Also there was a lack of signages and information about the history of the garden and it's structures.
It consists of a series of smaller Gardens situated at a lower height like Steps of Gardens.
The restaurant outside serves good paranthas and the Chole Kulche on the road opposite the entrance are also quite delicious.
Overall, it's a good place for a picnic. Children would love the open spaces here.

The Rock Garden of Chandigarh

Reviewed By shouches - Pune, India

The rock garden is one of the primary attractions of the beautiful, planned city of Chandigarh. It is a splendid experience roaming through the labyrinthine structure.
With very simple and throwaway material, the architects have created displays, water falls and a magical experience for the visitors. Plan to spend at least an hour at this place.

Sunset Point

Reviewed By Pathfinder1A - Dharamsala, India

Getting there- walking from main town about 20mins. Car upto a point then 5 mins walk.
Do carry ID - you may be stopped by Army check post, this being an Army campus.
The sunset point has a good view, swings/slides for kids, benches & toilets.
The sunset sadly isn't spectacular because of the smog hanging over the plains.
The presence of swings/slides & unruly tourists takes away the serenity & calmness of the place.
Going further up the road for a peaceful sunset is recommended.
A tuck shop is available close by for refreshments.

No mandir. Only area where mandir once stood can be observed. Markings by arch. Society can be seen. I also believe encroachments by neighbours has begun. As you are already visiting yadvindra park, no harm going another 300 mtrs.

Christ Church Kasauli

The Christ Church Kasauli situated close to the bus stand, was constructed by the the British family who founded the town of Kasauli itself. The church is a magnificent structure built in the shape of a cross. Set amidst a grove of chestnut and fir trees, the church offers quiet and tranquil atmosphere. Earlier the church was known by the name of Anglican Church. In the year 1970, the church was brought under the aegis of the CNI (Churches of North India). It is currently managed by the diocese of Amritsar. The Christ Church is the prime building in the centre of the heritage area of Kasauli town and as one enters the main town, this is the first building which comes to view. This church was previously an Anglican church and was founded in the year 1844,

The location of the church is good, near to the small market and has plenty of parking space. It is good to visit the church.
