“A royal building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

The architecture and the library is worth a visit. If you are lucky you may see the snow covered peaks. There is a small birds enclosure just opposite the main gate. You can see Monal the state bird of Himachal Pradesh there.

“Beautiful colonial building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

Enjoyed seeing the Viceregal Lodge, now an advanced education centre, which unfortunately means you can only see the bottom floor. Getting a guided tour is mandatory but very cheap.
