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 corp office via market area, do check out fresh Bakery items at "TRISHUL BAKERY" We tried out Almond pastry which was made with fresh cream and tasted very nice. There are many shops of toys , apperals and branded outlets in market area so one can enjoy shopping too. A very unique item , dummy small Hawkins pressure cooker is available in a utensils shop. A evening walk on Mall Road is always enjoying. There is a walking pathways to Jakhu Temple as well , next to Church.

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 of the city. Also good for shopping for indegenious stuffs like spices, garments etc.

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.
