Hey everyone.. I am soniya. I visited Shimla two months ago with my husband and I found that place so awesome for a newly wedded couple…so if u all searching for place where u can enjoy with your partner then u all should visit Shimla.. I will tell you about where to visit in Shimla, so lets continue…Shimla is the capital and the largest city of the northern Indian state of himachal Pradesh. Shimla is home to a number of buildings that are styled in the Tuderbathon and neo-gothic architectures dating from the colonial era, as well as multiple temples and churches. The colonial architecture and churches, the temples and the natural environment of the city attracts tourists. Attractions include the Viceory Lodge, the Christ church the jakhoo temple, the mall road and the ridge , which together form the city centre. The kalka Shimla railway line built by the British, a UNESCO world heritage site , is also a major tourist attraction. Owing to its steep terrain, Shimla hosts the mountain biking race MTB himalya which started in 2005 and is regarded as the biggest event of its kind in South Asia. Shimla also has the largest natural ice skating rink in South Asia. Apart from being a tourism centre, the city is also an educational hub with a number of colleges and research institutions.
Shimla features a subtropical highland climate under the koppen climate. The climate in Shimla is predominantly cool during winters and moderately warm during summer. Temperatures typically range from −4 °C to 31 °C over the course of a year. It is typically around 45 millimetres (1.8 in) per month during winter and spring, and around 175 millimetres (6.9 in) in June as the monsoon approaches. The average total annual precipitation is 1,575 millimetres (62 in), which is much less than most other hill stations but still much heavier than on the plains. Snowfall in the region, which historically has taken place in the month of December, has lately (over the last fifteen years) been happening in January or early February every year. The maximum snowfall received in recent times was 38.6 centimetres (15.2 in) on 18 January 2013. On two consecutive days (17 and 18 January 2013), the town received 63.6 centimetres (25.0 in) of snow.
The people of Shimla are informally called Shimlaites. With largely cosmopolitan crowds, a variety of festivals are celebrated here. The Shimla Summer Festival, held every year during peak tourist season, and lasting 3–4 days, is celebrated on the Ridge. So these are the highlights of Shimla which u will get to see if u visited overthere.my journey was too cool and fabulous. and I suggest you to visit there atleast for once.
