Shimla


Shimla is the capital of Himachal Pradesh and a major travel hill station in India. Shimla is also an important  administrative centre. Shimla (formerly spelt Simla) is set amidst spectacular hills and seeped in an aura of crumbling colonial charm. More than a government seat, it worked as the perfect setting for romance in the days of the British.The scenic landscape, the fabulous weather and the more relaxed social norms spelt love with a capital. Far away from the censorious eyes of Delhi and Calcutta, hot-blooded men and women indulged in drinking, gambling, and all sorts of licentious behaviour. Shimla was indeed the hotbed of passion and gossip, the lovely Mall being the centre of all action.
