Shimla, the name itself must be like synonym to Hill Station. I remember people visiting this place and telling stories when i was kid.
I heard so much about it and visited it so many times. However this place always gave me something new.
First time, I visited this place as a tourist and did sightseeing of all the places (only in my latest visit i Realised that in my first visit the cab driver took me to fake Jakhu temple... :-)
Yes, i went to real jakhu temple this time.
The thing is that now you have Google Maps, so you can search if the place is really what cab driver is saying or not.
Anyways, coming back to the key topic. I know all of us must have visited Shimla many times but it always gives you scope to visit again.
Here are the reasons..
1. Beautifully restored Gaiety Theatre
Gaity theatre was built in 1888 and has been beautifully restored. It is classic neo gothic architecture and only 8 such theatres remain in whole world. More history can be found online but this is a Masterpiece. The guided tour is charged only 10 bucks and it lasts for 45 mins. Its backed by curator of Gaiety theatre, an extremely knowledgeble gentleman.
