History

The history of Toolihalan begins with the increase of population. Before 1952, the place was without human beings. Everywhere, there was nothing but forests. In 1952, some people migrated from Shopian to different places in search of food and safe shelter and few of them got settled at Toolihalan. Later, Government of Jammu and Kashmir constructed a footway from Shopian to Toolihalan. In 2014, deadly flood damaged footway badly. In 2015, Government of Jammu and Kashmir made minor changes in the road connectivity. With the development of technologies, road connectivity is the same as it was in 2015.
