Here I am going to share some Photographs of Beas river which flows through Sujanpur and moves towards Punjab... All these photographs have been shot from bridge over Beas near Sujanpur-Tira...

Tira Sujanpur-Tira is located on the bank of River Beas. It is a beautiful town inhabited by Maharaja Sansar Chand Katoch who was the king of Kangra and later shifted from Kangra to Sujanpur-Tira after the war with Muslim kings who wanted to capture Kangra fort. Maharaja Sansar Chand constructed his palaces, temples and courts on the peak of hill called Tira, hence the name of the town is Sujanpur-Tira. In the middle of this beautiful town there is one square kilometer green ground popularly called in Pahri language 'Chaougan' (which remains green throughout the year). Now part of the ground is occupied by the Sanik School. The ground is a meeting place for most of the town people, ladies, men's, children for evening walk and for playing all types of games. Most famous Holi fair also takes place on this ground which lasts almost 2–3 weeks during the month of March.

The river got this name, Vi-pasha, the one who removed the bondage or pasha in Sanskrit), according to a ancient texts, the river was named after sage Vasistha. Vasistha, tried to end his life due to the death of his 100 sons, by jumping into this river and tying himself. But as soon as the sage fell into the river, all the knots got untied and he did not die. The river is also referred to as Vipasha in Himachal, especially by the scholars...
