Shimla Tour

Shimla is a cool city to  visit during the hot summers of the Indian plains and get some relief from the  increasing heat. The most visited tourist spots in Shimla are the Himachal State Museum and Library, the Christ Church, the Jakhu Temple and historic buildings  like the Town Hall and the Rothney  Castle

The Himachal State Museum and Library has an impressive collection of  Kangra and Mughal miniatures, coins and jewelry, temple carvings, some  paintings of Shimla, Chamba embroidery and weapons like massive blunderbusses.  It is thrilling to visit this museum.

The Christ Church has a huge touch of British  architecture to it. It is the second oldest Church in northern India. It  contains some British Raj era memorials and stained glasses. The Jakhu temple  is the most famous temple in Shimla and is dedicated to the monkey god, Hanuman.  Many monkeys can be seen loitering here, harassing devotees for Prasad. You can reach this temple by  taking pony rides. Ice skating is also a popular activity during winters.
