Blazer, Vice Counselor and Head of Chancery of Switzerland in India, named Khajjiar 'Mini Switzerland of India' and put a signboard of a yellow Swiss hiking footpath that displays the distance of Khajjiar from the Swiss capital 'Berne' as 6,194 km. With this, Khajjiar became one of the 160 locations in the world that resemble the topography of Switzerland and one of its stones became the part of the stone collage around the Swiss Parliament, which represents Khajjiar as the 'Mini Switzerland of India'.

Khajjiar was a part of the erstwhile state of the Rajput rulers of Chamba. In the 6th century, it served as the capital of the Chamba rulers. Thereafter, it was taken over by the Mughals, from which the rule passed over to various Sikh kingdoms. Finally, British control was established over Khajiar and with the independence, the hill station became a part of the state of Himachal Pradesh. The picturesque beauty of the place, along with its nine-hole golf course, has given a boost of its travel and tourism industry.
