Bharmour and its 1400 Year Old Temples

The first time I saw Bharmour was when I turned eighteen. I had just got a drivers license and I had a lot of free time. The map of Himachal I had at that time showed Bharmour as the last place one could drive to on that side of Himachal. Having never seen Chamba district, I set on a solo drive in my father’s blue Maruti 800. Now after about nine years I reached back and the place is surprisingly the same. The only difference I could notice was a proper road from Chamba. Here are some pictures. These are available to be licensed for editorial use exclusively on Getty Images.
