3. Christ Church, Kasauli

Established by the British Raj in 1853, the mystical halls of Christ Church offer a glimpse into Indian Christianity. The Gothic structure amid chestnut and fir groves has an old European feel, but the warm tropical climate makes it seem exotic and otherworldly. Upon arrival, you must first pass through a vast serene courtyard where you can observe the church's tilted green-tiled roof and the simple beige walls. Inside, the stained glass windows depict Jesus, Mary, and other Christian figures as you enter the threshold. Besides crowded Sunday masses, the church also hosts weddings and other festive, atmospheric occasions.

4. Manki Point, Kasauli

Hike up to Manki Point, the highest point in Kasauli. The lookout point is known for its distinct boot shape, which, according to a legend, formed when Lord Hanuman stepped on the hill after returning from the Himalayas. While on the hilltop, you can visit the small temple dedicated to the deity, enjoy the spectacular views of the mountain peaks, or hang out with the resident monkeys. Both the temple and its surroundings lie on the premises of the air force, so cameras and cell phones are not allowed in the area.
