With kids enjoying horse rides, tourists taking group pictures, elderly men and women sitting on benches and taking in the views of snow-clad mountains, vendors selling toys, newly-weds taking a romantic stroll and little eateries selling ice creams, the Ridge is undoubtedly the heart of Shimla. At any given time, one can see a large number of tourists having a great time here. The large open space is the centre of all the hustle and bustle of the hill station and also the permanent venue for most of the events and cultural festivals held in the city. The most popular festival hosted at the Ridge is the annual Summer Festival, which is held every year during the months of April or May when people from all parts of the hill station gather and indulge in a riot of activities. One of the most photographed points of Shimla, the iconic Ridge lies along the Mall Road and connects major places like Lakkar Bazaar, Scandal Point, Jakhoo Hill and the Mall with each other. The landmark Christ Church, a fine specimen of Neo-Gothic architecture and also one of the most visited tourist spots of Shimla, is also located at the Ridge.
