Swathed by cedar, rhododendron, fir and Himalayan oak trees, Shimla, the state capital of Himachal Pradesh, is one of the most popular hill stations of India. Several heritage buildings in the city are witness to historical moments that have shaped the history of south Asia.  

The Ridge and The Mall are still popular landmarks just as they were in the pre-Independence era. The imperial Viceregal Lodge, the graceful Christ Church, Gaiety Theatre, Gorton Castle, Barnes Court and several buildings are part of the colonial architectural heritage of the town.
