Solan has achieved a lot of titles throughout these years. It’s called the mushroom city of India, because of the bulky production of mushrooms here. Also we can not forget the production of tomatoes in a large amount  giving Solan another name that is city of Red Gold. It doesn’t end here, as this city is also known as the educational hub of Himachal. The very renowned universities like Shoolini University are located in Solan. And on the other hand it is also the economic capital of Himachal Pradesh. If that’s not enough I have a lot of other facts too!
