Gairsen 104 1836 Named after Veer Chandra Singh Garhwali, it is proposed Capital of Uttarakhand. A decision on the matter is to be taken. Siuated in the center of Uttarakhand, this tiny town is situated in the gradual hill slops surrounded by dense forest providing rejuvenating fresh and cool air andl water. Lack of infrastructure is the main argument behind not shifting Capital to Gairsen otherwise it the best suited location for the capital of UK.  Few hotels are available.
