Interesting and eclectic

Great shops and buildings - testament to a bygone age of grandeur. Some buildings in disrepair which shouldn't be allowed if Shimla is to flourish as a tourist destination.

The Mall doesn't allow any cars on it's roads, (due to underground storage for water?) making it one of the best places to walk. It is situated quite high, allowing one to see the beautiful view of the hills and houses. I particularly enjoyed taking the longest elevator ride of my life to get up there! For around 20 rupees,...

The Mall is in the centre of Shimla and is a rare place in India where there is no traffic, only pedestrians. There are plenty of shops selling everything and the locals seems to enjoy just strolling along.

A must visit whilst in Shimla if just for the atmosphere of the hustle and bustle. There a few interesting shops for the tourist especially the old book store which is treasure trove of old ohotos and maps.

The Mall at Simla is the nerve centre of Tourist town. Now restricted as a walking zone, a walk on the Mall is a must for every visitor. Being the centre point a series of paths converge on top and facilitate easy movement from one side to the other. Relatively clean, you can find hordes of tourists enjoying sun shine... More

Tourists will instantly associate this with Britain (old style) individual shops, market traders, a little theatre (Gaity) a Church a Town Hall and a fire station with English fire engines

Just like any crowded narrow road in a small town. Not really a place for a casual stroll. Would not go there unless you needed to buy something from a local shop

Its not possible to 'not visit' this place if ever you've been to Shimla! Though mostly very crowded, its a nice place to be there! Walk down to a loong queue of good shops with soft-spoken shopkeepers offering good products. Specially, you can find good quality and variety woollen and leather clothes at nice price.
