Thanedhar is a quaint village in Himachal Pradesh situated just 80 kilometres northeast of Shimla. The name 'Thanedhar' comes from two pahadi words: 'Thando' meaning 'chilly' and 'Dhar' meaning 'flow,' denoting the cool wind that blows here. Thanedhar is also known for its Apple orchard history. Samuel (Satyanand) Stokes bought a 200-acre tea estate in Thanedhar from an English widow called Emma Matilda Bates and planted saplings there.
