Strung out along a 12 km ridge, with steep forested hillsides falling away in all directions, Shimla is the capital of Himachal Pradesh state and one of India's most popular hill resorts. In 1864, Shimla was declared as the summer capital of British India. Post independence, the city became the capital of Punjab and was later made the capital of Himachal Pradesh. Situated at the height of 2200 mt, the famous hill station is buzzing with a happy flow of heat-escaping vacationers.
The weather is pleasant for most of the months with tourists flocking especially during the summer months. The winters are cold with couple of months of snow from mid-December till February end. It is often covered with nearby towns of Kufri, a hill-station almost always covered by snow and Chail, famous for a huge palace and the highest cricket ground in the world. Tourists also visit the famous Jakhu Temple which is located at the highest point of Shimla.
