    Bestest place which you can’t miss. At the highest point of the mountain, you can see Hanuman ji standing tall and almighty. Going to the place is very convenient now with the escalators. And Sunday and Tuesday are very busy. Every Sunday there is Bhandara - you must try.
    And if possible do read hanuman Chalisa there 🙏

    Riding horses and enjoying ice cream while spending time with family on a sun-kissed afternoon goes directly to your heart.

    One of the main attractions of the beautiful city of Shimla, The Ridge, located at the centre & at the top of The Mall, is a great spot for people watching, views and clicks.

    The Indian Institute of Advanced Study in Shimla offers a serene and intellectually stimulating environment for scholarly pursuits. Nestled amidst the Himalayas, its historic building and lush surroundings provide an inspiring backdrop for academic discourse and research.

    This church is an interesting Victorian space.
    The plaques lining the walls are memorials to those lost in India during the British Raj era and are fascinating. Some nice stained glass too. This is a good spot to relax and reflect just yards from the hubbub of town.

    This historic Gaiety Heritage Cultural Complex was wonderful place to visit. Though built in British era it great to see that the place is restored and maintained very well. The eagerness and friendliness of the staff is impeccable.

    The place is definitely worth the visit, when you are in Kufri. We went during winter, after snowfall had just hit the place. We went up the mountain portly by car, then rest by jeep (requires 4WD). They took us to a viewing area atop the hill, where there were snow activities, such as ski-ing and tubing. As you leave the top, on your way down, you can stop at the many scenic spots to view the grand mountain side filled with greenery and some snow.

    Nothing Much but still worth visiting here. The views of One part of Shimla are a nice place.

    Not much of a crowd as well hence you can be there peacefully for a few hours.

    Keep walking straight from the famous Shimla Church, towards the Ridge, the working women’s hostel and onwards, at the end of this road you will find this beautiful destination - The Kali Bari temple, a very old temple of Goddess Kali located at a picturesque height! It’s less crowded and very serene, you can spend some quality spiritual time there or just sit to talk to yourself amidst the fragrance of incense sticks and holy bells ❤️
