Thathri Town (East to West) in 2019

Thathri is a historical and commercially important town in the Thathri subdivision. It is located along the left bank of Chenab (Chandrabhaga) River. National Highway 244 passes through the town.[8]

Location[edit]

Thathri is located in the foothills of the Lesser Himalayas. In ancient times, it was filled with the paddy fields of nearby villagers.As more and more people built their houses in place of these fields and finally it became a village.Over time, the population increased by people coming and settling here from places as far as Tral,Baramulah in kashmir and the people who now settled in Thathri made it a center of business. The reasons for kashmiri population settling here in the past in 17 or 18th century is matter of ambiguity between historians.However Sumantra Bose Bose says it was repression by feudal class that drew people to the district of Doda.[9] In 2011 the population census reported that Thathri contained at least 92 villages.

Noon Chai[edit]

Noon Chai in kashmiri (commonly known in Hindi/Urdu as Namkeen Chai) or Pink Tea is a famous beverage of the people of Thathri. Villagers often start their workdays by sipping a cup of tea at their homes or hotels. Noon Chai (noon means salt, 'chai means tea) is eaten with traditional Kashmiri breads and pastries like lavasa, sheermaal, kandir chot, bakarkhani and kulcha. It is traditionally made from special tea leaves, milk, salt, and cooked in a samavar. A pinch of baking soda is added to help give it more of a pronounced pink color. A recent variant preparation of this tea also includes sugar but it is not traditionally consumed in Thathri.[11]
