  • The building is standing tall from British time. The architecture is amazing. It was renovated a few years back but the architecture is the same as before. Now a days it is famous for all type of creative and performing arts ; for example painting, photography, dance, drama, theatrics , classical and folk music etc.
  • Heritage place of Himachal. The place is very renowned for theatre activities and for art and culture. Many great artist were performed here. In time to time national and international film festivals organise in Gaiety.
  • Lovely heritage structure. The restoration is done nicely. It feels like being transported to a time in the past or inside a period movie.
