4.2/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web
Enjoy a view of the Himalayas and a city panorama amidst lush greenery from Kali Bari Temple, a famous hilltop pilgrim centre and one of the oldest temple in Shimla. Painted in intense red, orange and white colors, the temple houses a blue wooden image of goddess Kali, must sought after by devotees seeking blessing. Built upon the foundation of an old temple dedicated to Goddess Shaymala found by British engineers in the early 19th century, Bengali pilgrims converted it into a Kali temple in 1845. Thronged by thousands of devotees during a festival, the temple is located at the end of the Mall road. A visit to Kali Bari Temple represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Shimla trip generator to plot your vacation.
