Places to Visit in shimla

Shimla combines the beauty of the high Himalayas, the energy of a city and the charismatic charms of a hill station. It offers lovely deodar forests, mountain views and is a treat of heritage architecture. The Mall Road and the Jakhoo Hill are the main attractions of the town. You can easily spot a Barista, CCD, and other food chains here. However, the pleasure of savoring hot paranthas with tea in the morning at local stalls is unparalleled.

Shimla combines the beauty of the high Himalayas, the energy of a city and the charismatic charms of a hill station. It offers lovely deodar forests, mountain views and is a treat of heritage architecture. The Mall Road and the Jakhoo Hill are the main tourist places of the Shimla. Jhakoo hill is the highest point of Shimla and is the perfect place for mountain babies. We suggest you visit Shimla in the months of March to June. From Chandigarh, Shimla is just 4 hours drive away.

You will fall in love with Shimla’s beautiful Gothic bungalows and heritage buildings. Other than the Jakhoo Temple which is an ancient temple dedicated to the Hindu Deity Hanuman; Mall Road, Ridge Road, Theog, Viceregal Lodge which was formerly the residence of the British Viceroy of India, Himachal State Museum where you can spot various Art & artifacts such as ancient tools, dolls, coins & traditional garments in a Victorian mansion, Johnnies Wax Museum, and Shimla Heritage Museum are the famous places in Shimla.

The locals of Shimla are very friendly and helpful. For religious people, we suggest Tara Devi Temple, Kali Bari Temple, Kamna Devi Temple and Sankat Mochan Temple. There are numerous peaceful and adventurous activities you can opt for here. To name some of the activities, you can simply take a heritage walk, nature’s walk, travel in a toy train, go ice skating at any of the various sites, water rafting in Tattapani.

There are many restaurants in Shimla serving scrumptious food. If you wish to have lavish lunch with beautiful views, some of the famous places to eat in Shimla are The Restaurant, Cafe Valley Vue, and ABC Bar. Explore the local street food of Shimla. Have fruit chat, enjoy maggie along a chai, have golgappa, relish Embassy Ice cream, momos, chole bhature, and parathas. All these local street food is offered at very cheap rates but tastes the best. For local and moderate rated dining, you can opt for Cafe under Tree, Aunty’s Kitchen, Hideout Cafe, Wake and Bake Cafe, or the Indian Coffee House.
