About dehradun

Ensconced between the Himalayan foothills and the Shivalik mountain ranges, Dehradun is a hectic city and the capital of the Indian state of Uttarakhand. The rolling green hills in Dehradun seem to go on forever, with an azure sky stretching overhead. Located in Doon Valley and cradled between the rivers Ganga and Yamuna, Dehradun is best remembered by the colonial-era buildings and museums left behind by the British. \r\n\r\nThe sprawling Forest Research Institute Museum, the Indian Military Academy, the Survey of India Museum, Geology Museum and the Indian Institute of Petroleum are a few of the famous institutes and museums in Dehradun. Nestled among the green hills and often wrapped in a cool mist, is the Hanol Temple. The mysterious Robbers’ Cave is sure to bring out the adventurer in you. The Tapkeshwar Temple, Great Stupa, and Malsi Deer Park are the other attractions in Dehradun. This fascinating city also serves as a gateway to Rishikesh, Haridwar and Himachal Pradesh.
