SLV – SHIMLA ARCHITECTURAL TRAVEL GUIDE
by Saumya Sharma, Prabha Choudhary and Lovnish Kumar
Shimla, a small town located in the midst of the beautiful Himalayas, could have been just one of the many hill-stations that were founded by the British during the Colonial period in India. But it became much more than just a beautiful getaway when in 1864 the town was made the Summer Capital, that is, the summer headquarters of the Imperial Government in India. Even though, over the years, Shimla has witnessed and is still undergoing a great deal of varied construction, the resonance of the bygone British Era is still a prominent aspect of the town’s character. Replete with beautiful walks among the mighty deodars and a frequent encounter with the unique architecture of the British era that exists at its ”blended best”, a visit to Shimla will be made more lucrative through this extensive guide.
