The Mall itself, i.e. the top of five levels of parallel streets, offers a variety of modern shops and businesses. Nothing really special for someone coming from the western capitalist world. But move down to the other levels, then the real bazaar marketplace comes to life, it's a frenzy of colors and people, yet it's not at all noisy, nobody... More

I had greater expectations, because i have been to Mall road, Manali before, which was a great place. The mall road at Shimla is more like a shopping destination for brands like Wrangler, Puma etc. So many brands available here. There were no shops that delivered Woolens, Kashmiri goods, Shawls, handicrafts etc. So if you want to shop something traditional/handmade,... More

It has pretty much everything to-do in Shimla. Ridge, Church, Gaitey, Kali Bari Temple, Vicregal Lodge, etc everything is accessible from the Mall only. All the good restaurants and food joints are located on the mall. Nice ambience and the tourist hustle makes it a lively place.

As with other reviews, this is really a main street, however it is well worth seeing as there are many interesting buildings to see. I did enjoy my few days in Shimla.

Nothing special. The ridge however is something not to be missed. Nainital's mall road is far better.

This is the only and exciting part of our Shimla trip, although some people may argue there is nothing unusual about this place, I would say, there are lot of local bakeries at the mall road, you can taste excellent patties and pastries if you are foodie like me. And if you like wooden crafts then you can go ahead... More

probably one of the very few places in India where you're not likely to be run over by honking vehicle. Amazing mixture of nepalese, chinese, colonial, and the indian. Unlike anything else I've come across in India.
