A great place to visit and see where history of India and Pakistan was made. Immaculately kept and well maintained. The guided tour is a treat to be part of . India Pakistan division was planned there.

Having been born and raised in Shimla and living as close to this magnificent structure to walk and reach in 10 minutes has been a boon. from the time when we would visit the place as little children in the 80s, to now - though much has changed with the administration and managements of the place - the beauty remains, as it always was.

This is an old building which has many historical events attached to it. It was build by Scottish architects and has some wonderful features which were quite modern in that era like electrical wiring, water sprinklers for fire fighting etc. The architecture is good. There is a guided tour available but the cost of ticket @ Rs.200/- is very high. One can take good snaps from outside the lawn.

It is also known as Viceregal Lodge. This is old british constructed building which definetly looks amazing when you see it in person from outside. There is Rs.30 ticket to see it from outside while at inside there is museum which can be seen by paying separate ticket. The area and laws are very well maintained. At the enrty point there is a cafe where you can get some snacks and hot drinks. There is washroom facility just behind this cafe.

Please be noted that visiting this property needs good amount of walking and there are no sign showing way to property. Need to keep asking for direction to students and other staff who walks on this road.

One cannot take car inside the property as the road access is given only to the staff. One need to park the vehicle beside main road (where you wont get cha1llan)

Visit to Advance study Shimla - Himachal Pradesh. It was a dream comes true moment for me. From long I was planning and finally succeeded. It Just beautiful Haritage just 4 Kms from ridge and shimla mall road. Old monument is surrounded by lush green tree and Majestic Himalayas

Visiting inside was not allowed, Might be due to it was closed for the day  but the beauty all around was just awesome. Such peaceful lush green Deodar and Pine trees do add on on its beauty. Front Lawn was well maintained and have pure green grass no mark of dirt, Even we were stopped to walk upon. Initially we thought why  would they stop us for walking in the lawn but later we realise that it might be mandatory to save it's beauty

It is a Beautiful Combination of Ancient monument which located in mid of the Jungle. So Many specimen of old architecture, Building foundation, Ancient time tracking system with the help of sun rays. Perfect example of planing of a building which is suitable for hilly weather around the years

Suitable time for Visiting is Summer season when you can spend your entire day around. No Hurry carry your snacks but be careful and contribute to Bharat Swachta Abhyan other wise you will punished.

Wish you luck and for future visit.

Great architecture, kids enjoyed alot due to its resemblance with hogward magic school, but truly a marvel of Scottish architecture. This is Indian Institute of Advance Studies aka viceregal lounge( British era name) that selects only few scholars in the field of humanity and social sciences who reside there and that too without any faculty ,for independent research. Building is partially allowed for common people with 200 rs tickets for adults and 100 for kids .Only 3 halls can be visited , most lavish is the hallway near stairs , wood work is just amazing and so massive .Garden and outskirts are so beautifully created that features this place so distinct so one can easily believe the place is not in India or magical like hogwards of India. A Must visit place that is amazing for kids as well as adults..

We were in India for 10 days in early March 2019. Shimla Manali and Dharamshala exceeded our expectations in every aspect. Hotels we stayed in, or the places we visited. Thanks to North India routes for their planning selection of places and their hospitality. The guide & Driver and the vehicles they provided were outstanding. At every place we were provided with resourceful knowledgeable English speaking guide who were with us from the time of arrival at the airport to until departure . our visit was more memorable because of the hospitality and hassle-free arrangement by the Company. We highly recommend them if you are planning a trip to India -Shimla or Manali, and we would go with them on any of our future trips to India.
Thank you for making our trip and absolutely memorable one.
Thanks North India Routes 🙏🏻
