Shimla is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Northern India. Situated at an altitude of 2276 meters, the town served as the summer capital of British India from 1864 until Independence. This is the reason why you’ll find lots of buildings styled in the Tudorbethan and neo-Gothic architectures dating from the colonial era. Shimla city stretches nearly 9.2 kilometers from east to west and is built on top of seven hills. Jakhoo Hill, renowned for Hanuman Mandir and 108-feet-high idol of Lord Hanuman is the highest point in Shimla at 2,454 meters.
There are lots of places in and around Shimla that are worth exploring by travelers and tourists. The Mall road is famous for Townhall building and Gaiety Theater which was opened on 30 May 1887. The Ridge located a level above the Mall Road is famous for Christ Church, a neo-Gothic structure from 1844 and a Tudorbethan styled library building built-in 1910.

Kali Bari Temple dedicated to the goddess Kali built-in 1845 is just 1.1 km from The Ridge. The Kalka–Shimla Railway line opened by the British in 1903, a UNESCO World Heritage Site today, is also a major tourist attraction. The Viceregal Lodge located on the Observatory Hills designed in Jacobethan style is one of the most historic buildings in Shimla.
