Shimla is located at an altitude of 7,380 feet above sea level and is the capital of Himachal Pradesh. It is an amazing place to visit and ideal place to plan your next vacations - solo, family or with friends.
The city lies in the north western side of the Himalayas and is known as the getaway to the Central as well as greater Himalayas. It is the starting point of enjoying a journey filled with exciting jeep safaris, trek expedition and much more.
The city has been named after the Goddess Shyamala which means a blue female and is another name of Goddess Kali. The city gained popularity during British rule as the British people came here to get away from scorching heat of the plains. The name of the city was changed from Shyamala to Shimla during their reign due to difficulty in pronouncing the original name. In fact they made Shimla their summer capital.
Shimla is replete with many tourist must-see-places like ancient colonial buildings such as Viceregal Lodge, Auckland House, Gorton Castle, Peterhoff, Town hall and the Command House. You could also visit the Christ Church of Shimla, Municipal Administration building and Gaiety Theatre building are great places to spend quality time.
