The river Beas flowing first roughly from east to west and then in a northwesterly direction is the principal river of the District. The District is no less important to the Tibetans and they call it Zahor because of the interesting association with the great Buddhist teacher and missionary, Padmasambhava, (750-800AD) for he went to Tibet from here to preach the doctrines of Buddhism at the request of the Tibetan King.

Old bazaars, and exquisitely sculpted stone temples of Panchvaktra, Ardhnariswar, Trilokinath and Bhootnath attract the eyes of any beholder.
