The WelcomHeritage Judge’s Court is a 300 year old ancestral in the medieval hamlet of Pragpur, at an elevation of 2000 ft. in the Kangra Valley of the North Indian State of Himachal Pradesh. It has been restored with painstaking attention to original techniques but with the introduction of modern plumbing and lighting. Alongside this ancestral cottage is a large country manor designed in the Indo-European tradition – set amidst 12 acres of orchards overlooking the Dauladhar mountains – built in 1918 by Bhandhari Ram for his son, Justice Sir Jai Lal. The property was therefore commonly referred to as Judge Sahib Ki Kothi and the name of The WelcomHeritage Judge’s Court stuck.
The village of Pragpur was classified as a heritage zone in 1997 and for good reason – caught in a charming time warp, there is little to mark the advent of the modern age in the aspect of the unchanged shops, mud-plastered and slate-roofed houses, ornamental tank and the cobbled streets leading to the village courtyard of this seeming medieval village.
The 300 year old ancestral cottage, restored using original techniques but with the introduction of modern plumbing and lighting, still reflects the atmosphere of the era to which it belonged. It comprises all the elements of a full house including kitchenette, sitting room, bedroom with dressing room, study and a terrace, an independently accessed suite & a double bedroom, all with attached bathrooms.
The WelcomHeritage Judge’s Court’s stately accommodation comprises 10 Double Rooms, 3 of which are suites inclusive of the cottage in the ancestral courtyard. The rooms go by such names as Kipling, Hardinge, Kangra, Dhauladhar, Hermitage etc. and are elegantly furnished.
The Kuthiala Sood family that owns and runs the property has been part of Heritage Village Pragpur since the time it was founded.
Accommodation is available only on prior reservation.
The WelcomHeritage Judge’s Court substantially grows its own fruit, vegetables, wheat, maize and oil seeds so a great deal of the fare comes from this organic environment. Milk is from dairy on the premises and water is exclusively piped from a mountain spring.
