History Haripurdhar was earlier known as ‘Dungbhangayani’. Formerly, this was the summer capital of the Sirmour. Situated on a crest of Haripur hill like a silent sentinel, there is a fort named “KILLA” that was built on this mountain range by the rulers of incipient Sirmour State. It was mainly meant to guard the state outskirts with the neighboring Jubbal State as there were regular boundary disputes between the two states and there was unusual push into each others territory. It has fallen into abandonment and the part which is still livable is used by the Forest Department as forester’s headquarters.
