Very nice place. The Army Museum is very good and a must see. A silent locale away from the bustling town upstairs. Lawns are fantastic

There is a great and very nice museum of the great Indian Army. The place is good and to reach there we had to go through the jungle.

The drive amidst the forest is mind blowing. The golf course and the helipad amidst the mountains is captivating. Unfortunately I couldn't see the museum since it is closed on Mondays. So, plan your itinerary accordingly.

If you visit Simla then this army museum is a must visit. You will get a lot of insights and get to see some treasure like the treaty of 1971. Just don't miss this!!
