Shimla- A Place of Divine Beauty
Shimla is a beautiful hill-station and the capital of the state of Himachal Pradesh. The state is iconic and every moment spent there is worth every penny spent. The ideal time to plan a holiday in Shimla would be anywhere from March to November. Being a hilly region, you cannot really predict the temperature here. The winters are extremely cold and the temperature easily falls to Zero Degree Celsius and at times, even below it. Himachal Pradesh because of its divine beauty is called as the ‘Land of Gods’ while it is called as the ‘Queen of the Hill Stations’.

If you wish to see Scottish Architecture in India, then Viceregal Lodge is what you need to have a look at. Of course, the history associated with it is no less exciting. Within the lodge’s premises, you also get to see some amazing British artifacts.
The Mall is predominantly a sprawling shopping market. The famous Christ Church of Shimla is also located here.
If you wish to have a look at the Army museum and the golf course and also be with the nature, then you must visit Annadale. The best part is that Annadale is not at all crowded and you can find that absolute tranquility you are in search of.
This is one of the most ancient temples of the Hindu God, Hanuman. The specialty of this temple is that it has an eight feet tall idol of Hanuman which can be seen from a very long distance.
