Nahan is wrapped around legendary tales and folklore. One of these believe that here a sage, Baba Banwari Das, prevented the king Karan Prakash in 1621 from killing a lion by uttering "Nahar" (or don't kill). It is said that the town has derived its name from this legend. This quiet and quaint hillstation is just about 40 kms from the renowned Sikh temple, Paonta Sahib Gurudwara, which is popular among tourists and the devout alike. Take boat rides, walks around town past beautiful bungalows and into unexplored forests and offer your prayers at the significant Trilokpur Temple, just about 20 kms from Nahan. Or better still, visit the fascinating Suketi Fossil Park, which is Asia's first to preserve life-sized plasticised fossils at the site of their discovery. Fossils here have dated back a 150,000 years. Go home with a bag full of souvenirs, including woolens and Himachal caps, and a heart full of memories.
