Description: Dagshai lies at the bottom of the Shivalik Hills and is one amongst the most ancient cantonments established during the British era. It is housed at an altitude of 6000 feet above sea level. Once you reach atop of Dagshai you can spot numerous school campuses, flaunting there red or green colored rooftops, existing since the year 1876.

Many famous battles in the history of India have been fought here between British and Gurkhas, battles fought by Sikh forces as well as hill chiefs. In the past, Dagshai was a barren land and was under the custody of the Maharaja of Patiala. It was later on given to British people to establish a cantonment area. It was the first church built in this cantonment area and highly praised for its interiors designed using wood. The flooring has been laid down using red colored stone. A statue dedicated to Mary Rebecca by her husband, crafted in Italian marble, is worth watching. Other attractions are a pond made in Red Stone and Gothic structures in the church.
