Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Not worth a walk or a drive. Just whitewashed army barrack which is also locked. The approach road is bad and all you can get is a small tea shop

We arrived just before closing but the guard allowed us to enter and I am so glad he did as some of us are serving Prison Officers. Small prison area, exercise yard, the main building had very small cells and on the wooden floor are written the words Welcome. So different to the luxury jails we have now, prisoners of today would not offend again if kept in places like this.
Built in 1849, cell size 8 x 12 feet with a 1 x 2 foot window. 54 cells, 11 of which were for staff, 16 were solitary.
If you are interested in prisons then give this a visit, it does not take long but interesting. Just down the road is a grave yard. You would not want to come back to this as a prisoner that is for sure.

DAGSHAI
I was visiting Dharampur, a small town on the way to Shimla when I heard about
Dagshai and the old ‘Angrezon ke zamame ki jail’ there (A jail of the British era). So, out
I went exploring this not so famous town. I was in for a surprise… it turned out to be one
of the oldest cantonment towns, based in the Solan district of Himachal Pradesh. Its
route is along a small diversion on the right from the Shimla Kalka highway close to
Dharampur, about 11 km from Solan.
The town has no hotels, no restaurants, no shopping areas for the tourists. Along with a
few daily need shops there’s just one tiny eating joint and a small café outside the Jail
and the museum.

It’s the only place of interest for a tourist in Dagshai and is currently being used by the
Military Engineering Service (MES). It was built in 1849 and is one of the scariest places
I have been to. As we enter there are two very small open air compounds which were
along the corridor leading to the actual jail hall. The heavy metal door that closes behind
u as u enter is ever looming. The first thing that strikes u is that the whole place is
absolutely dark. The army officer who showed me around had to use a flashlight. I
entered into a large hall, with walls about 30 ft high and with small windows near the
roof for the scarce ventilation.
The unique feature of the jail was the wooden flooring. It was 2ft above the ground level and hollow within. This was to ensure, that no move by a prisoner goes unheard, to
deter them from escaping. The hall had a number of small cells with bars like doors, with
another solid metal door after a gap of about a foot, with just a tiny window for
ventilation. Each cell held about 3-4 prisoners, and the notorious ones who gave
trouble were made to stand between the two doors for hours, ensuring extreme
physical discomfort as they could not sit nor move.
The road had no population around it and there was just thick vegetation on one side
and deep valleys on the other. It was a bit foggy and it drizzled now and then, so I
couldn’t get the complete view on my way up. But the feel was just out of the world.
Beautifully maintained paths, strategically placed benches to enjoy the scenic
views…and yes the touch of the cantonment was very much there. All along the way,
there were boards displaying the details of the army men who had sacrificed their lives
for the nation and were awardees.
But on my way back, as if the God was hearing me, the weather took a turn and the sun
came out. And thank God it did, or I would have missed it all. The panoramic view that u
get at so many points is to die for. Such immense beauty in abundance, and the range
of mountains giving u peace and joy.

It is a single day outing in Dagshai cantonment situated 50 kms from Chandigarh. It has a historical importance when Mahatma Gandhi was held here for some days.
Now made into a museum it does give you chills going inside and seeing the cells did not have any light and total darkness.
Lot of bats in the old rooms plus old furniture still lying around.

Do visit if you wanna see how an old Jail looks like

Chandigarh to dagshai distance is 55 km, , 75 min journey, nice place for half day trip or picnic. Jai museum is a place to see the best architecture of English time. Other things to visit are church n ashram and big ground for playing games

Entering Dagshai Jail and Museum is like entering a time warp.

It is famous for a one night stay by Mahatma Gandhi.

Run and managed by the Army, the Dagshai Jail is well-preserved. We were shown around by an Army officer, who vividly recounted past events and tortures known to have taken place in this historic place.

Dagshai Jail still has the broad and long corridors with dark cells on either side. To tame the prisoners, one technique was to sandwich them between the outer door of the cell and the inner door, that held them upright and immobile.

At the back of the Jail is the wall, against which prisoners were executed. Bullet marks on this wall are still visible.

The Museum recounts the history of Dagshai.

One thing which is famous about Dagshai Hills is that it was used as Prisoners cell by Britishers diring their regime in India but there are lot many other facts which are hidden like this place itself.

To begin my Review, this place is just 50 Kms. From Chandigarh and one can reach this beautiful location in just 1 Hour and 30 Minutes (that close). The irony is that most of the tourists dont bother to explore this place and cosses it unnoticed on their way to Solan or Shimla.

The place is picturesque. It has a School and South Indian Dosa Point where you can have fingerliking dosa at an unbelievable low price that you have ever eaten anywhere. There is a Graveyard nearby which can be explored and where specially Youth love to spend their time.

As regards Museum in Jail premises is concenred, yes its ultimate. They have preserved few things as part of the great historical moments. There are Cells where prisoners were kept with special mention to Cell of Mahatma Gandhi which they have showcased. Some artifacts of that time and a glimpse of History can be ascertained by visiting this museum.

At last, I would say this is a place worth exploration and you should give it a try. Jeeyooo...
