Of heart. Overpopulation of tourist ruined it

Shimla is also known as Queen's of heart. I visited this place many times. Being Himachali for me, overpopulation of tourists are ruined this beautiful place. State govt should take strick action to stop this. Tourists are welcomed but should be in limit #savenature. #Savehimachal

Awesome

This place is heart of Shimla. You can spend a full day sitting here watching the beauty and having delicacies with your loved ones . Very beautiful natural scenes, a church is there which gets glowed at night and looks beautiful . Our national flag is standing full day which gives you a proud feeling.

At night ridge looks magical and view is awesome.

The rigde is beautiful sightseeing spot in Shimla where you see the whole city on the mountains. A lot of people come here just for a stroll and enjoy the view. It's like mass gathering on the ridge and people enjoy to just roam around and take picture with beautiful mountains in yhe background. In the winters it looks more beautiful with snow and all. The whole ridge area looks out of this world in the winters. This place has more crowded in the evenings and it is recommended to visit it in the winter season. You can also visit jakhu temple directly from the ridge but get ready for knee bending trekk. If you are in shimle don't miss out this one. Cheers !.

Very beautiful place

Very beautiful place. Very peaceful. Beautiful flowers and very well maintained garden, lawn and building. I will like to spend one whole day here. I will recommend all to spend first half day here and then in evening go to mall road and Church. Cafeteria of advance studies is very good. You can plan your breakfast here.

Ridge

This is the most popular point in Shimla. Located on the Mall road, at the heart of Shimla, this is a much loved and enjoyed stretch here, where visitors come and soak themselves in the views of surrounding areas.

Nice open space available along the Mall road

This place is located along the Mall road which connects major places in Shimla. It is the hub of cultural activities also in Shimla. During winters the snowfall here looks beautiful. The view from this place is enchanting. Scandal point is also nearby.

It is the only place to visit

It is open space on height of mall road near church and art gallery. Nice place for night and view of Shimla is good at night. There is market and restaurants on this area but it all closes at 9Pm sharp so need to go early, no night life in Shimla.

Like a foreign place!

It purely looks like a foreign place .. As there vehicles are strictly prohibited except emergency/ambulance service. There are various shops, ATM, bank, post, mostly everything and even lot of benches. Everyone enjoys the casual walk at a great Ridge!

Feels like a foreign country totally

Ridge is a place at the top of the hill, the road is plane and open, no entry for vehicles and only people walk over there. Both sides of valley is seen from the ridge and entire view of Shimla can also be seen easily.Street photography and sellers are present at a large scale. Ridge is the main attraction point and is centrally connected with all sightseeing spots on Shimla city. A very lively place for spending evening time for tourists. Beautiful place and centre of attraction.
