Kullu lies in the lower reaches of the Himalayan range The Kullu valley was earlier referred to as Kulanthapitha. Kulanthapitha literally meant the "end of the habitable world".

The earliest recorded information of this area goes back to 1st century ad, when this valley began to be inhabited. In the medieval period, Kullu and the area around it was ruled by a number of local rulers. The capital was at Jagatsukh, 5 km to the south of Manali. In the 17th century, the capital was shifted to Kullu and the boundaries of the kingdom extended up to Lahaul and Spiti and the river Sutlej in the east. Though the valley was strategically located on important trade routes from north India to Ladakh and beyond, it was isolated from other parts of the country for many centuries till it came under British rule. The British governed the Kullu valley from Dharamshala.


Places to see
While at Kullu you must check out the tourist attractions of the Raghunath temple and the Jagannathi Devi temple.

One of the main tourist attractions of Kullu is the Raghunath Temple. The temple is dedicated to Lord Ram, who is one of the principal deities of the Hindu religious pantheon and the patron deity of the entire Kullu valley. Raja Jagat Singh, the erstwhile ruler of Kullu, built this temple in AD 1660 to atone for his wrongdoings. He obtained a statue of Lord Ram from Ayodhya and established it within this temple.

Then there is the Jagannathi Devi Temple or the Bekhli Temple. The temple is at a distance of 3 km from Kullu in the village of Bekhli. You must check out the panoramic view of the valley from the temple. You need to climb a 1½?hour climb to reach this temple. The 16th-17th-century AD copper mask of the Goddess inside the temple has local Gaddi tribal features while another shows Rajasthani influence.
