The place also derives its name from one of the British engineers who constructed the small railway line. Today, the place stands less crowded however with awesome mountain views. Care to take a royal train ride and enjoy the scenery around you?

  2. Mughal Sarai, Doraha

    While Barog talks about British era, Doraha is all about Mughals. In fact, it was this place where the Mughal caravans of Jahangir would halt for rest. Although there had been a number of forts and monuments, presently everything is in ruins. While moving around this amazing construction, you’ll still get to see the blue-and-yellow tiles on entrance archways, floral designs on the Northern and Southern gate and a large terrace on the double-storey gateways. Mughal Sarai fort also gained prominence after being seen in Amir Khan movie- Rang De Basanti. Few people therefore call it the RBD Fort.
