Must visit attraction. Lots of history. Learning experience for kids. Grandeur of this place is spellbinding. Perfect place to witness the heritage of colonial India. Photographs and other artifacts make for splendid nostalgic viewing.

Viceregal Lodge has so much of India's history immersed in it. A must visit while in Shimla. A well conducted tour is included in the price of visit.

Must visit place if you go to Shimla. Centre for Advanced Studies. The architecture and the layout with pretty creepers with flowers hanging around on the wall give it a very nice facade.
