Located on the peaceful banks of River Sutlej on the old Hindustan-Tibet Road, Rampur is a bustling town best known for its beautiful temples. Some of the temples worth visiting include Dumgir Buddhist Temple, Raghunath Temple, Ayodhya Temple and Narsingh Temple. The main attraction is the royal Padam Palace, which is a blend of colonial and traditional styles of architecture. Its imposing edifice carved out of wood and stone is a notable feature. Surrounded by lush green lawns, the palace stands as a reminder of the rich past of the rulers of Rampur. Every year, during the month of November, the town hosts the Lavi trade fair, one of north India's biggest events. Some of the items one can shop at the fair are shawls, handicraft items, blankets, dry fruits from Kinnaur and other traditional trade items. The town is also popular for the Rampuri chaddar, a type of handwoven blanket. The softness and durability of these blankets make them a favourite among tourists. Rampur is located at a distance of 135 km from Shimla.
