The history of Kangra valley dates back to the Vedic times, more than 3500 years ago. Once upon a time, Kangra was home to the world's oldest serving Royal dynasty- the Katoch. The town was also ruled by some great invaders like Mohammed Ghazni in the 11th century, Mohammed Bin Tuglaq in 1337, Raja Purab Chand in 1351 and finally, after the first Anglo-Sikh War it was acquired by the British people. Despite the blitz and political turmoil's, the region has continued to develop and flourish.
