Nestled amidst the foothills of the Shivalik ranges, Dagshai is one of the oldest British cantonments in India. It is situated at an altitude of 6000 feet above the sea level and is dated back to 1876. Blessed with fascinating scenic charm, the Dagshai hill is a major place of attraction among the tourists. Earlier, this hill top was quite barren and thus the King of Patiala transferred it to the Bruisers in order to establish a military cantonment at this place. Moreover, Dagshai is also historical popular because of the battles of Sikhs and Britishers with the Gurkhas.
