Barog is a sleepy little town of Himachal Pradesh. It is located in the Solan district of this state and makes a delightful place to go on a tour, while in Himachal Pradesh. This place, surrounded by lush green locales gets its name from an engineer named Barog. It is said that this engineer was to construct a tunnel across the hill, which when completed was to be the longest in the world. However, due to some miscalculations, the ends of the tunnel did not meet as they were required to. Due to shame and disgrace, the engineer committed suicide.
