Shimla

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM SHIMLA?

Shimla, earlier known as Simla used to famous as the summer capital of British India. Shimla city gets its name from Shyamala Mata, a fearless incarnation of the goddess Kali. Most of the area occupied by present-day Shimla city was dense forest during the 18th century. The only sign of civilisation was the Jakhu Temple.

Shimla was built on top of seven hills: Inverarm Hill, Observatory Hill, Prospect Hill, Summer Hill, Bantony Hill, Elysium Hill and Jakhu Hill. The highest point in Shimla is the Jakhu hill. himla retains its colonial heritage with grand old buildings, such as, the stately Viceregal Lodge, charming iron lamp posts, and Anglo-Saxon names.

Shimla has been blessed with all the natural bounties one can think of. Dwelling on a panoramic location, the hilly town is surrounded by green pastures and snow-capped peaks. The spectacular cool hills accompanied by the structures made during the colonial era create an aura, which is very different from other hill stations.
