Shimla - The beauty of Neo-Gothic architecture


Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
I heard a lot about Shimla since childhood..For me Shimla and apples are synonyms..:) We reached Shimla from Kasauli via cab..Our stay was at Grand Hotel..A comfortable accomodation with tidy rooms.. After getting fresh we went for sightseeing..What I felt is,there is nothing much to enjoy the nature here..It appears to be a commercialized center with beautiful traces of British ruling..It was once the summer capital of Britishers..The best thing I observed in Shimla is its colonial architecture..A walk by The Mall road gives you few beautiful glimpses of the Neo-Gothic architecture..

Shimla in pictures..Here we go..

Boiled eggs with a pinch of salt and pepper were tasted delicious in that chilly climate

No apples grow in the 'Shimla' you visited, nor is the fabled Shimla there in what you saw. It is, but in traces.
To see Shimla, 'Look out! Look out!' is what they say :)
