Meaning & History

"Himachal Pradesh" translates to "Snow-Laden Province" or "Province of Snow" in English. The name is derived from the Sanskrit words "Hima" meaning "snow" and "achal" meaning "mountain" or "range." This name reflects the state's geographical location in the Himalayan mountain range and its abundance of snow-capped peaks.
