Shimla is Himachal Pradesh’s capital city and is extremely beautiful. In 1864, during the British Rule, it became India’s summer capital. It’s very popular among tourists and is known as the “Queen of Hills”. Its old and large railway tracks link Shimla with Kalka. These railway tracks were enlisted in the World’s heritage list by UNESCO. It is 120 kilometres away from Chandigarh which is among India’s major cities and from Delhi its 365 kilometres away which is not only a major city but also its capital. The name Shimla originated from a Goddess’s name, Shyamala Devi. She is known as the incarnation of another goddess, Kali.
During summers, the climate is fairly warm and during winters it’s mainly cold. Its Mall is a shopping central street for tourists who come here seeking freedom from the hot summers in India.
