Barog’s history dates back to 1900s when an engineer, Colonel Barog, was designing a tunnel near the railway station. However since his calculations went wrong the construction of the tunnel could not be appropriate for which then British government charged him a Rupee 1 fine. He committed suicide in embarrassment and guilt and later the tunnel was completed by H.S. Harrigton. Today that tunnel stands one of the longest tunnels in the route of Shimla-Kalka. Over the period of time Barog has grown to be one of the most romantic places in Himachal Pradesh.
