Lovely open area at the heart of Shimla, with amazing views across the nearby hills. Nice to by and icecream and sit on the high benches, watching the world go by.

The place is set right at corner of Ridge Road and Mall Road, it's named by Britishers. The place offers good view of both Ridge Road and Mall Road, the place gives the feel of chills of Shimla.

The Scandal Point is located on the Mall Road. It owes its interesting name to the fact that the King of Patiala abducted the daughter of the Viceroy, because he fell in love with her, from this very place.

Don't miss to visit this area. It's one of those places where you go, roam around and dwell into the Shimla mood ! Lots of shops around for shopping and food.

Scandal point - still a focal point for tourists and locals alike. Little England in the middle of nowhere in India! Don't miss the monuments/statues to Indira and Mahatma Gandhi and the splendid views from here.
