The Shimla Diary

At almost 8,000 feet above the mean sea level and lined with colonial buildings and pine and deodar tress, Shimla is the quintessential Indian hill station, albeit a bit crowded and commercialized. Offering spectacular landscapes to take in and pedestrian-only stretches to stroll around, the town, which served as the summer capital of British India from 1864 to 1947, is now a bustling tourist destination for Indians and foreigners alike.

Away from Delhi’s noise and dust, I spent a couple days wandering through the Himachal capital with my camera, and here are some of the pictures.
