Kumru Fort

Kumru Fort, Kumru Fort historical, Kumru Fort travel, Kumru Fort tourism, Kumru Fort Historical Place, travel to Kumru FortLocation : 2-km from Solan Valley, Himachal Pradesh
Altitude : 2,600m.
Houses : An Image of Kamkhya Devi
Unique Feature :
An exotic Image of Lord Buddha on the Fort's Main Gate

At a distance of 2-km from the Sangla valley, lies this wonderful place, the tower-like fort of Kamru. The Sangla valley is a breathtaking beauty in itself, with a blaze of saffron trees and cold snowmelt. Here, the river Bapsa flows to meet the churning torrent of the Sutlej River at Karcham.
The nature shows off its existence and the splendor of this land. Along its sides rise snow clad mountains, thick forests of deodar trees, and lush green and richly fruited orchards.
The Kamru fort is a quiet sentinel, located at a fearsome altitude of 2,600 m above the sea level. This place is at a distance of 229-km from Shimla, and is a dense cluster of houses, surrounded by fields and orchards. The road distance from Himachal Pradesh to Kamru fort is 611-km. The main gate of Kamru displays an striking image of the Lord Buddha. A series of gates through the village lead to the fort.

The fort seems like being placed over packing of dressed stone that acts like a pedestal for an exalted piece of art. The tower possesses an elegant wooden balcony. The image of Kamkhya (Kamakshi) Devi, supposed to have been brought from Assam, is installed on the third floor.
There is also a 15th century shrine of Lord Badrinath, which hosts a light every three years. The image is passed to Gangotri, the source of the Ganga in Uttar Pradesh.
