The medieval settlement of Pragpur, in the breathtaking Kangra Village of Himachal Pradesh houses a breathtaking three century old, painstakingly restored ancestral cottage. Kissing this chalet at a height of 2000 feet; is a large country manor that is reminiscent of the British Raj in India. Nestled in the lap of 12 acres of delectable orchards, this manor, built in 1918, in the Indo-European style overlooks the magnificent Dauladhar Mountains. This mansion was constructed by Bhandari Ram for his son, Justice Sir Jai Lal. As the judge resided here, it became colloquially famous as Judge Sahib Ki Kothi, which led to its nomenclature as WelcomHeritage Judge’s Court.
Pragpur, because of its charmingly preserved rural allure, is a heritage village since 1997 and every effort is taken by the hotel to preserve its ecology. There is little evidence that Pragpur has changed with the passage of time, and the hotel vies to be as self-sufficient as possible, utilizing its own vegetables, dairy, and even sources water from a local spring. Proximate to great watersports and a myriad of outdoor activities, colourful markets and vibrant festivities, Judge’s Court is an ideal retreat in picturesque north India. Considered as India’s finest country hotel, it is surrounded by fruit trees like camphor, cardamom, lychee, mango and plum among others, in the shade of which visitors can while away their time. The manor offers luxurious rooms that have contemporary facilities, along with peace, relaxation and genteel hospitality with a great deal of scrumptious food.
