If I leave aside Indian Institute of Advance Studies, THE MALL is the other attraction where you can spend some time. Its a nice walk with mix of modern and OLD English culture. If you take the Tourist lift, the road will not be a killer. Visit the ridge area for sure. It has few decent resturants and other Himachal... More

Best thing is vehicles not allowed, road is too broad for crowd to move and enjoy scenic view. Good eating joints.

The Mall Road is a must place to visit in Shimla. Maximum people come here in evening for a walk from Scandal Point till Church. The area near Statue of Ex PM Indira Gandhi is most populous , where people have a bird eye view of Shimla and get them snapped. If one is walking down towards lift via municipal... More

the mall is one of the most famous location of the city. it is crowded, famous and exactly the center of the city and you can calculate the distance of various attractions from this place. The shops, cafes and restaurants and the whole crowd indulged in activities actually give us a good place to people watch and catch the pulse... More

Having been to a lot of hill stations - I can vouch that the Mall, Shimla is the best. Very well maintained, neat and clean, lively crowd, great shopping, no touts to pester you for anything. You feel transformed into history will the old architecture maintained well. And yes, it is smoke free (Smoking in public is an offence here).

Just due to crowd, the Mall is a lot hyped place. The only saving grace, at least for me, was a lot of historical buildings/shops on the mall which are worth exploring.

in all the hill stations I have travelled to in Northern India - mainly Himachal and Uttarakhand, the mall road of Shimla is indeed the best, in terms of both the view and experience. its windy at the top and feels awesome on the open air eating joints.

Even though a Delhiite, I had never visited Shimla, and we were looking forward to a walk on The Mall and shopping. On the way from Kandaghat to Mashobra, we visited Shimla via the lift. Nice concept. You go up two fllors via two different lifts. We first went down the local road - very crowded and like a village... More
