The British established a cantonment in Kasauli (6322ft) in 1842. Located in the Solan district, it is 77kms away from Shimla and 70kms from Chandigarh. We set off at 9 in the morning from Shimla. We drove past Shogi (13 kms from the capital), a Shimla suburb on the Ambala-Shimla NH. The road to the Taradevi temple goes from here which is about 5kms.
