Nangal is a well-planned city that has residential areas well-divided into blocks, which constitute a fixed number of apartments. This place was initially a part of three villages, namely Nangal Nikku, Hambewal and Dobetta Colony. Blessed with the Shivaliks and various rivers, the natural beauty of Nangal is highly captivating. This site has become immensely popular after the Bhakra-Nangal Dam was constructed on the Sutlej River in 1955.
The prime attraction here is the beautiful lake formed by the dam. Tourists can visit various other attractions like Julfa Mata Temple, Gurudwara Vibhour Sahib and the historic temple of Sri Baba Udho Ji Maharaj. Travellers need not worry about accommodation as there are several dharamshalas and lodges present here. It is just 63 km away from the main city of Rupnagar and can be reached easily by road.
