History of Panchgani

Panchgani is the archetypal British-in-India hill station, with imposing old bungalows and public buildings with the Raj stamped all over. In fact, Sir John Chason founded Panchgani in 1854 as a sanatorium town and to rest and recuperate away from the heat and dust of the Indian plains. Today, the little town is better known for its English style boarding schools and old Parsi houses that look out on to the forested tracts.
