The natural beauty of the surroundings has been a source of inspiration to great writers and artists including Rabindranath Tagore who, it is said, wrote one of his most famous works ‘Gitanjali’ from a hilltop in Ramgarh, where he lived off and on for six years. He planned to set-up Shantiniketan here, but eventually chose his home state, Bengal.

The renowned poetess Mahadevi Verma lived in Ramgarh and her home is now converted into a library of her works.

Soulitude in the Himalayas is situated in Gagar, Ramgarh.
