There are some must visit tourist attractions in and around Shimla that one should visit.

The Ridge: The large open space that runs east to west alongside The Mall Road is the cultural hub of the city. On a clear day or after a light rain, the views of snow peaks of Himalayan ranges to the north are spectacular. The neo-gothic towering architecture of the Christ Church, the state library in the vicinity, the statue of Mahatma Gandhi, the slate roofline of Gaiety Theater and the Town Hall are important landmarks on The Ridge.   

The Mall Road: As a business center, The Mall is the main street of the hill station. Running parallel but lower to The Ridge, this shopping arcade is dotted with modern day showrooms, departmental stores, etc.. The front side of Gaiety Theater and Town Hall buildings are on this street. Himachal Emporium at the west end of the arcade sells locally-made handicrafts and handloom products. Scandal Point, the place where The Ridge and The Mall converge, is a good place to catch up with the day's news and gossip. Once can visit Viceregal Lodge, Jakhoo Temple, Kali Bari, Sankat Mochan Temple.
