Whilst Shimla is not strictly in India's Golden Triangle (Delhi - Agra - Jaipur), it is a holiday extension not to be missed.
In the days of the British Raj in India, during the Summer months the governing administration moved from the heat of Delhi to the cooler climate in Shimla. The image above is the Viceroy's Lodge, from where the British administration governed the sub-continent
If you do visit Shimla, I strongly suggest that you take The Toy Train up through the foothills of the Himalayas to get there - an experience not to be missed!
The views are spectacular
In Shimla you will meet some monkeys - some naughty monkeys ...
