Shimla, The Queen of Hills
Located in North-West Himalayan Range, Shimla is one of the most popular tourist destinations in India. Once the Summer Capital of India, it is the capital of Himachal Pradesh and is a thriving place for the state’s tourism.
The name Shimla comes from Shyamala Devi, an incarnation of Hindu Goddess Kali. Modern-day Shimla is all about urbanism while retaining the pristine beauty that brings it the “Queen of Hills” title.
The fervent development in Shimla during the British reign gave the city its architectural heritage, classic buildings, educational institutes, and Kalka Shimla railways, for which Shimla is popular right now.
