Nahan is the ideal romantic retreat because it is removed from the bustling city. This little hill village is the perfect vacation spot, nestled among the majestic Shivalik range and overlooking verdant green fields, clean streets, and dirt-free roads.

Numerous tales and legends have been constructed around Nahan’s past. This town, which was established in 1621 as the Raja Karan Prakash’s capital, is thought to have gotten its name from a sage by the name of Nahar who lived on the same location as the town does now. Another story claims that the town was called after a situation in which the king attempted to kill a lion but was stopped by a saint named Baba Banwari Das who said, “Nahar,” which means “don’t kill.”
