shimla

Shimla famous for its love affair with the Raj takes you back in time with its marvellous Victorian architecture. Shimla, the capital of Himachal Pradesh, is truly the summer capital of India. Enjoy the golden beauty of Shimla with a leisurely walk at the Mall. Take a stroll by the Ridge and you will experience the majesty of a city immortalised by many famous personalities during the colonial times and now by Indians in modern times. Retreat in the splendour and rainbow-hued pristine charm of the classy Mall.

Visit the Ridge, the large open space located in the heart of the city, the venue for the summer festival, government functions & all local celebrations during the New Year’s Eva. See the amazing Christ Church, one of the oldest churches in North India, constructed in 1846 & reputed to be the second oldest church in North India. Marvel at the 19th century organ and the fresco surrounding the chapel designed by Lockwood Kipling, Rudyard Kipling’s father. It’s replete with historical charm.

The Ridge, north of the Mall, gives a panoramic view of the seven majestic hills of Shimla. The Ridge is the fulcrum of Shimla’s social life- it reminds one of an English evening from the era of Restoration Comedy (17th century), where all the who’s who of the small place would be gathered for an evening walk and the latest buzz would be circulating in the hush and gaze of the place.

The higher levels of the town display an array of Victorian buildings; while the lower slopes are to do with Indian bazaars and restaurants.Walk along the Cart Road, running south of the Mall, via the Lifts. Further down, it will take you to Lakkar Bazaar, boasting of lovely handicrafts and souvenirs.

Locals insist that the name Shimla originates from Shayamala Devi, a re-incarnation of Goddess Kali. Shimla is enveloped in a mist of haunted ruminations and a shroud of legends. Nothing is more memorable than hearing a local quipping on a ghost tale from the Raj era.
