Shimla, now the capital of the state of Himachal Pradesh, came into prominence nearly a century ago as the summer capital of the British Raj. Many of the buildings of Kipling's days exits even now.

Shimla is, today, a beautiful mountain resort. In summer there is the attraction of excellent walks and treks with the scenic beauty of flowers, wooded ravines and evergreen trees. Golf and fishing are popular sports.
