While ruling Whole India from the capital Delhi the Britisher choose Shimla as their summer capital.Viceregal Lodge was the official summer residence of British Viceroys and the Indian subcontinent was ruled from here for half of every year from then till WWII. Henry Irwin’s grey-sandstone creation resembles a cross between Harry Potter’s Hogwarts and a Scottish baronial castle.

An Ancient Picture of Viceregal Lodge

Today it houses the Indian Institute of Advanced Study: you can take a half-hour tour of a few rooms with interesting photo exhibits, but the old ballroom and dining hall are now a library and closed to visitors.The handsome gardens still make an enjoyable stroll. The cool Breeze will relax your mind. And you can Grab a Book from the library and enjoy it on the gardens !! If you are a Foodie like me  you can Enjoy the hot coffee and Snacks in the canteen or take some taste of Himachali HPMC fruit juice from the HPMC Juice Corner.
