A visit to SHIMLA is INCOMPLETE without walking through famous MALL ROAD. It is here that we have so many shops, View points (including scandal point). Old historical Chuch, HANUMAN STATUE on the hills, Indira gandhi statue can be seen.

There is nothing to indicate the significance of the spot ... so it’s nothing more than a designated spot in a busy area. If you want to know it’s importace you’ve got to figure it out for yourself.

It is just a intersection of the mall road and ridge. You can just take a photo or two while you are strolling on the mall road. Nothing great about this point.

This is nothing but a round about and police post which is given name as 'scandal point ' due to some story behind it. There is nothing special about this point. Sometimes you don't even get to know this area as there is no signage....More
