this Monkey temple is the highest point in Shimla over 2200 meters over sea level. You have a splendid view overlooking the valley on a clear day from here.

Jakhu Hill is the top most point of Shimla and entire Shimla hills views can be seen from the Jakhu Hill. Taken a CAB from Mall Road to visit Jakhu. The first snow at Shimla starts from Jakhu Hills only. Must visit Hanuman Temple.
