Sarahan at 2150m, is synonymous with its imposing Bhimakali Temple, a traditional structure of wood and stone in the Kinnauri style, against the stunning backdrop of the Shrikhand Mahadev range of the Himalayas.
Shri Bhima Kali is the Kul Devi of the former Bushehri rulers. Sarahan was formerly known as Shonitpur, the capital of the Bushehri State before it moved to Rampur. The summer palace of the Bushehri rulers is a pretty wood constructed complex opposite the temple. Visitors may not enter the palace but are permitted to walk through the grounds.
We stayed at the HPTDC Hotel The Shrikhand which faces the Shrikhand Mahadev massif. There are several other hotels nearby which also offer similar views though the rooms at the HPTDC have the advantage of silence. All the other hotels get the sound of the Bollywood style bhajans blaring from the Temple at Aarthi times.
