Best scenic place in sangla
Jul 2021
It is situated at the height of about 2600 mts, one has to climb almost 300 mtrs. straight up to reach to the place!
The main fort is around 1400yrs old and it is only for the local people. Very scenic place, one has to wear the cap (cover the head) before entering the premises. It is being provided by the security guard.

Kamru Fort is an easy hike of around 45mins from Sangla town. The trail to Kamur fort passes through Kamru village, Badri Vishal temple of Kamru and Kamru monastery.

Surrealistic beauty...!
Oct 2019
One of the oldest fort in Kinnaur with quintessential Kathkuni architechure. It was built by a king of the Bushahr dynasty. Kamru village used to be the capital of the erstwhile Bushahr dynasty. The fort is located above Sangla town. A 30min hike through the village alleys will take you to the fort.

A mesmerizing view
Oct 2019
Enveloped by snow capped mountains, the top of the building houses the idol of Khamakya devi. It is a wooden ford and has beutiful wooden carvings across. We were greeted by a lady who took us inside and told us the stories about the temple.
Please note that you cannot enter the temple if you are menstruating.

This a place for people who are interested in experiencing the wonder of watching the emergence of new amongst the ancient. With an interesting history, amongst new constructions, one needs to dig deeper to find the essence of a small village such is this

Kamru fort

If wiki says a fort is thousand years old it definitely warrants a visit. Our hosts had warned us it won't be an easy climb. It was not. But not because of the stairs - but due to the fact that the pathway is very badly maintained. It is ingabited Hy people all along. The stench of cow dung is a constant company. It is only the thought of a magical moment when you might touch thousand old year history standing amidst snow clad peaks that keep you going.
There is a temple on the way - of Badrinath ji - with nice wood carvings on the wall. It's about half way. After trudging along as much again you reach the top. It is serene - not much people are visiting it. Two women are guarding the entry - that's interesting. They ask every woman to read the board - it says menstruating women shouldn't enter the temple.
Inside there is a Kamakhya temple. The main is the abode of crores of Hindu deities - the locals believe.

Not much more is written anywhere. The view is nice but not spectacular with habitation all around.

I sincerely wish this monument is maintained better and preserved with the dignity that is due to it. More information about it should be made available - even well chronicled folklores should be preserved.

Architecture to see

This fort has nothing much to watch, as it belongs to "Rajgharana" family of the state.
A beutiful temple inside. And some essence of historical architecture along with kinnari rituals.
