Palampur is one of the major stations in Kangra valley. This city is the Trigarta of old. It was one of the leading hill states and was once a part of the Kingdom of Jalandhra. In local parlance the word for lot of water is "pulum". This is what has given Palampur its name and its water that has given the valley so much of its character. Countless streams and brooks criss-cross the landscape and to this place and in their intricate mesh, hold tea gardens and rice fields. The town came into being when the tea bush was introduced in the 19th century and Palampur became a focus for the planters. Kangra tea, with its center at Palampur, has been internationally acclaimed since then. To further bless the area with remarkable natural beauty, the Dhauladhar ranges rise dramatically from the earth. Just beyond Palampur. The town itself has come interesting colonial architecture and the area around is richly garnished with historical temples and forts and scores of picturesque hamlets.
