One of the seven hills that surround the city of Shimla, Prospect Hill is best known for a glorious temple dedicated to Kamna Devi. Perched on the summit, this temple can be accessed by a 15-minute walk from Boileauganj on the Shimla-Bilaspur highway. It lies at a height of 2,125 m above sea level, and offers pristine views of the town sprawled below. Tourists can also see the popular toy train winding through picturesque surroundings. The way to the temple is lined with deodar trees and according to popular belief, devotees who take the difficult climb to reach the temple, are blessed by Goddess Kamna Devi. Prospect Hill is also one of the best places in Shimla to witness gorgeous sunsets.
