Soon after the Anglo- Sikh war, Punjab came under British rule in 1849. The then chief engineer of Punjab, Lt. Col Napier, discovered Chamba valley in 1850. The British named it after the Viceroy of India (1848-1856) Lord Dalhousie. In 1853, the British acquired 13 square miles of land in the five hills Kathalagli, Potrein, Terah (Moti Tibba), Bakrota, and Bhangora from the Raja of the Chamba by reducing the tribute by Rs 2000 from the Rs 12000 the Raja was paying annually. In 1861, it came under Gurdaspur district of Punjab. Dalhousie became a district of Himachal Pradesh in 1966. Nestling at heights between 6000 and 9000 feet and surrounded by the five hills, this town takes us back to the British colonial era with its ambience and architecture amidst sylvan settings.
