About Bhangeri

Bhangeri is a village in Roorkee tehsil in the green terai region of Sivalik Hills of the Himalayas. Its official name is Bhangeri Mahavatpur. Gradually, villagers gave up their traditional profession of training elephants. High-quality cannabis (Bhang) plants grow naturally in the uncultivated lands around the village. Residents started calling the village Bhangeri, or "the place where bhang grows." The name stuck, and the village came to be known popularly as Bhangeri and officially as Bhangeri Mahavatpur.
