The erstwhile summer capital of British India, Shimla is famous for the still evident grandiose of British architecture amidst the magnificent alpine landscape.
The popularity of the place can be judged by the fact that the number of tourists visiting Shimla is only increasing by the year. It is packed with colonial-era landmarks, Toy Train, a buzzing mall road, ancient temples, cafes, and restaurants.
Highlights: See the majestic pre-independence attractions like the Viceregal Lodge, Shimla Town Hall, and The Gaiety Theatre. Get the best views of the surrounding mountains from The Shimla Ridge.
Summit the Jakhoo Hill at 8,000 ft and see the ancient temple. See the helipad and golf course at Annandale and visit the Shimla State Museum.
