Himachal Pradesh

Spread across seven hills in the northwest Himalayas, is a distinctive city that can easily be mistaken for a traditional English town. As the summer capital of colonial India for well over a century, the echoes of British Raj still linger on in the Tudor, Victorian and Edwardian architecture, charming iron lampposts and Anglo-Saxon names.

The old-world charm may be strong, but Shimla also has a lively and youthful pace. A walk in the heart of the city through local hangouts like The Mall and The Ridge reveals upscale shops, restaurants, and cafes. Today, walking through the city is not only pleasant but also a must as the main part of town is a vehicle-free zone.

Nickname: Queen of Hill Stations

Hindi, Pahari

Shimla specialty dishes include Uradh Dal with rice, Shepard’s Pie

84% of the population of Shimla city is literate, but the low sex ratio – 930 girls for every 1000 boys – is cause for concern.
