  • Superb and a great Army museum. Excellently ​maintained. Very informative on the history n all aspects of the Indian army, since the colonial days.All sewa medals also displayed with detailed reasoning. Lots of weaponry n dresses are displayed of all ages. There's a golfcourse only for army personnel. Clean washrooms for visitors and also a good refreshments outlet with gr8 sitting, directly over viewing the golf course.Entry is free but timing is 9am to 5-6 pm in evening for visitors.
  • Nice museum, away from the hustle of Shimla town. Majorly about the army history, has a small cafeteria serving Noodles and quick eats. adjoining the army golf course.
  • It is a Golf Course. Manicured & maintained. This is also State helicopters helipad. There's an Army meusium here. A tourists destination.
  • Its a famous place in shimla. This is one of the biggest open space in shimla. The first durand football match was played here in 1700 bc. Now the place is under army.
  • I don't play golf so I'm not going to review that way. For me, view of the valley and hills is awesome, a small coffee shop is nearby. So, I relaxed there while enjoying my coffee.
