Shimla was the summer capital of India during the British rule and this building was the residence of the Viceroy. This is the building where the discussions related to Independence and partition of India were finalized. Post independence, it became the summer residence of the President of India and during S. Radhakrishnan's time, it was converted into an institute of advanced study. Built in 19th century, this beautiful and majestic building had all the technology and facilities well ahead of its times like electricity. Immaculately preserved, this heritage building is a must see in Shimla
