Shimla Tour

 

Shimla, also popularly referred as the summer capital of India, is full of beauty in abundance. The excellent view of the hills makes Shimla tourism all the more appealing to the tourists. If you want to have your snaps in the most scenic location, then Shimla is the right place for you.
The word 'Shimla' originated from 'Shyamali Devi', a re-incarnation or descendant of the fearsome Goddess Kali. The altar at Jakhoo Hill was initially shifted by the British to the place known as Kali Bari Temple at present. The hill station is enveloped by seven hills that include Jakhoo Hill, Bantony Hill, Prospect Hill, Summer Hill, Observatory Hill, Invererarm Hill and Elysium Hill. The historic Hindustan Tibet Road was commissioned in 1850 commencing from Kalka to Shimla and thereafter to the Chinese ruled territory, Tibet.

Agriculture and livestock keeping are the two main occupations of the people. Art and Craft : The greatest example of the Culture of Shimla is the handworks of its people. You can check out the Thapada and Kohana- two styles of embroidery, bamboo items made by the Dom tribe. Apart from this Shimla also provides you its unparallel art of metal, stone and wood crafting. Fairs and Festivals : Fairs and festivals are an essential part of Culture in Shimla and you can experience its charm as the city celebrates them all around the year.
