The place is good for evening walk and not much for shopping, though called as shopping venue. Apart from Shimla caps, nothing unique of Himachal is available; most of the stuff is routine available everywhere.

Nice place for walking long distance and doing some shopping and having snacks and food. Various food pints to try out when you go there. A lovely place, you can always find people strolling there and clicking pics.

The Mall is the main shopping street of Shimla and offers a wide variety of shops. The historic buildings in which they are housed are rather sad and neglected - they could do with a bit of care and maintenance.

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

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
