Kynance is one important landmark in the tourist destination of Dalhousie. Kynance is a residential building that has received the status of a heritage building. It is a private building of Dharamvirs that was made by Dr. N.R. Dharamvir of Lahore. The building was constructed in the year 1933.

The building is historically significant because it is associated with the great freedom fighter Netaji Subhash Chander Bose. The great leader stayed with the Dharamvirs for seven long months. Netaji’s health had deteriorated and he had come to stay in Dalhousie to experience the enlivening and enchanting air of the beautiful place.

The building of Kynance stands secretly in such a manner that most people fail to notice it. Only a small board that bears the name of Kynance dangles from a tree and is noticeable only to those who have an eye for every detail.
