Kasauli is one of the small towns developed by the British during the 'hey
day' of the empire, and reached by a branch road from the Kalka-Shimla
road. The quite beautiful hill-station of Kasauli has a Pastur Institute
that produces the anti-rabies vaccine against mad dog-bite and, at the
same time, treats victims who have fallen prey to the dead disease,
Hydrophobia. The Upper and Lower Malls are the two main roads that run
along the length of Kasauli, a thick cover of pine, oak, horse chestnut
trees embracing the entire area. Traffic is restricted on these roads,
which is the reason why, Kasauli is one of the quietest hill stations in
India. The institute in Kasauli set up in 1900, is the oldest in India,
taking care of pet, police and army dogs as well as their masters.
