What is the speciality of Kullu valley in Himachal Pradesh?
Handloom Kullu Shawl is the best treasure one can look for. Kullu Shawls are made of many natural fibers such as pashmina, sheep-wool, angora etc..

Beyond rose the forbidding heights of the Greater Himalayas,
and by the banks of the shining river Beas, laid the fabled 'Silver Valley'.
Here is the core of an intricate web of numerous valleys - each of which is a visual delight
and seems more beautiful than the other.
The mountain scapes remain spectacular whether in brilliant sunshine or in the haze of the mist.
The 'Silver Valley' has nature's treasures that lie carelessly scattered as flowers on the high meadows
. The town of Kullu has long been a centre of faith.
In the 17th century, Raja Jagat Singh installed here an idol of Lord Raghunathji,
which he brought from Ayodhya.
As a mark of his penance, he placed the idol on his throne and it became the presiding deity of the valley.
