Artistically adorable – Andretta


Some places in the world are made for inspiration. Kangra Valley, in the amazing milieu of the mighty Dhauladhar, the Milky Mountains, has been always known to attract artists. The “Kangra School of Miniature Painting” being just one remarkable exemplar.

What Kangra was to art some 200 years ago; Andretta, a tiny village 14 km south of Palampur, is to artists in the present century. Andretta, with its Italianate sounding name, is a quiet and sleepy village known as a hodgepodge of culture. It nuzzles amongst the undulating plains of Kangra Valley, with a wide panorama of hoary mountains.
