Joginder Nagar, the erstwhile Sukrahatti village, is a town in the Mandi district of Himachal Pradesh. Sometimes it is also called as “City of Powerhouses” or “Electric City” because of distinction it holds as being the only city in Asia having three powerhouses simultaneously namely Shanan Power House, Bassi Power House and Uhl Stage III. One very special thing about all these Power houses is that these are being run by using the water of single river ‘Uhl’. The place derives its name from Raja Joginder Sen, who in 1925 created an elaborate hydel power scheme near the village of Sukrahatti which was then renamed Joginder nagar after him.

Joginder Nagar has everything for a quiet and relaxing holiday and leaves options open for trekking, fishing, sightseeing, picnics and enjoyable drives in the area. While on one hand you enjoy the thrills and chills while negotiating steep slopes in Haulage car, which is perhaps one of its own kind in the world. On the other hand you tend to return to childhood whilst feeding fishes in Macchiyal Lake. And the sheer engineering grandeur of the powerhouses could just titillate your inquisitive inner self. Besides, the snow capped peaks of Dhauladhar range is bound to keep you spell bound to the sheer beauty of nature and the invigorating feeling of fresh and crisp air would rejuvenate your energy levels. Apart from nature savvy tourists, even devotees get a fair share here in the form of famous Baijnath temple and Brajeshwari temple which lies in Kangra.

At Joginder Nagar, Himachal Tourism runs Hotel Uhl, which is a deluxe hotel and tariff for the same varies between Rs. 800 -1200 for a double bed room. Better accommodation could be found in towns nearby like Kangra (65 km) and Mandi (56 km).
