Extremely crowded but enjoyable like anything. The shops, the street hawkers, the ice-cream vendors, the youngsters in lovely dresses add a magic to the ambiance. Usually in the morning and evenings the scenes on both sides of the ridge is pleasant. The Majestic Church on one end reminds of the old British Architecture. If shopping is on your mind then...

We liked the variety of goods on offer and the friendly atmosphere of our Sunday afternoon shopping spree. Be careful as there seems to be a price for locals and one for tourists.

This is the heart of Shimla but is extremely crowded. Would always advise people to walk towards the ridge or the church or just turn around and go to the markets below

You need to walk uphill for almost 20 minutes to reach here. But once you reach, Its all worth it. Its a very unique experience of hill station combined with latest brand stores in old British architecture style. I dunno how tourists carry their baggage to hotels in the Mall area, coz its a no vehicle zone!

The Mall is one of the busiest places in Shimla. It's the best place, besides the Ridge, to hang around, when you are in Shimla. I usually take a walk to the Mall from our guest house [of the Institution of Engineers. India], located at the Nigam Vihar area of Shimla. It takes me about half an hour when I... More
