Beeji's Park - A wonderful place developed by Dalhousie Public School and deserve a stop for exploration in Dalhousie, Himachal Pradesh

I have been visiting Dalhousie almost every year for last 6 years now and have spent significant time walking around Dalhousie town & Dalhousie Public School. Over the years I have seen one of the section of DPS growing very well. Let me put it in other way - Dalhousie Public School has been investing heavily in improving infrastructure every year. Apart from School infrastructure, school authorities spend significant time and energy in maintain this whole hill where this school is located. Over the years, school has developed an area which is called Beeji's Park.   Related Blogpost : 8 Days road trip to 4 main Hill stations in Himachal Pradesh

Beeji's Park is on the road which connects Dalhousie to Khajjiar and it's very close to Dalhousie (approx 2km from Gandhi Chowk). The place is envisioned and curated by Dr G.S. Dhillon who is chairman of Dalhousie Public School. This defence park in Dalhousie is dedicated to all mothers. 

There is a tank located at the top-most part of Beeji's park which is a Russian supplied T-70 and had played a major role in the 1971 Indo-Pakistan War as well as the 1999 Kargil War.

Beeji's park also has a MIG-21 fighter aircraft presented by Air Chief Marshal N.A.K.Brown, former Chief of Air Staff in 2013. From this you can make out that Mr Dhillon had started it much early but formally the park is named as Beeji's park in 2016.  Two surface-to-air Pichora missiles were gifted by Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha, former Chief of Air Staff in 2015 which are installed on one side of this MIG-21.

Beeji's park is a good blend of natural grace and artificial finesse. It is also a source of inspiration and motivation for students to join the Indian armed forces - that how Dr. Dhillon believed & expressed in the past.

This Amar Jawan section has been added recently to Beeji's park and located just behind the MIG-21.     Related Blog-post : Sky-scapes from Dalhousie, Khajjiar & Chamba, Himachal Pradesh    Lot of folks coming back from Khajjiar to Dalhousie stop-by and spend some time around Beeji's Park. When I see this, one thing concerns me the most that it's located on road-side and many tourists park at random places & start walking towards the park with kids. It's also a road turn so there are various blind spots. If you ever plan to stop by and see this place, please be careful about parking the car at appropriate place & cross the road by keeping an eye on all directions on the road.

Beeji's park is open throughout the day but it looks best during sunset time when there are beautiful colors in the sky and everything places in this defence park has amazing lighting. 


Above photograph shows a view of main school campus from Beeji's Park. Dalhousie Public School has a huge hill with multiple facilities spread across this hill. Whole area, including road crossing through this hill is maintained by Dalhousie Public School. Above photograph shows a very small part of administrative unit. There are multiple hostels across the hills.

Main places to  explore around Khajjiar - 










Above all I love the passion which has gone behind this beautiful defence park in Dalhousie and credit for this goes to Mr G.S.Dhillon, Chairman of Dalhousie Public School. It's his thought leadership and focus which has lead to such wonderful & well maintained place in Dalhousie. And not only this, there are multiple things around Dalhousie which are built/maintained by Dalhousie Public School and worth appreciation. Dalhousie also has highest flag in Himachal Pradesh and that's also installed inside Dalhousie Public School near to teacher's residence called Rashmi Villa. I always love walking around this place and encourage you to see the place when in Dalhousie.     If you liked this post and found it helpful, I would request you to follow these things when traveling -   1. Manage your waste well and don’t litter Use dustbins. 2. Tell us if you went to a place and found it hard to locate a dustbin.  3. Avoid bottle waters in hills. Usually you get clean water in hills and water bottles create lot of mess in our ecosystem.  4. Say big no to plastic and avoid those unhealthy snacks packed in plastic bags. Rather buy fruits.  5. Don't play loud blaring music in forests of jungle camps. You are a guest in that ecosystem and disturbing the locals (humans and animals) is not polite
