Shimla, More To The City Than Mall Road And Jakhu


SHIMLA – just the name helps you conjure up images of snow-clad mountains, Mall Road and the Church at the Ridge.

Summer time, it is also a picture of beeline of cars trudging their way up to the cooler climes. Then, there would be people who say what’s there to see in Shimla except for Mall and the Ridge and maybe a visit to the Jakhu temple.

But how many people know that Shimla is more than Mall Road and Ridge. A localite made me realise that there is much more to Shimla than just the shoulder-clashing walks at the oh-so-rushy Mall Road.

Here are a few must visits in Shimla:

1. Forest Road

3. Craignano..Wait..What? You haven’t heard of this place?

4.Tara Devi walk


There is no fun travelling by car to Tara Devi. Get off your vehicles at Tara Devi bus stand and have a walk to Tara Devi.

5. And if you thought Shimla is all about Jakhu, try Visiting Kali Bari Temple


Try visiting Kali Bari Temple in evening and those Bengali Pujaris will make you feel close to the divine power.
