  • Amazing view here.. I clicked some amazing moment here.
  • This place is very good and their views Awsome
  • Probably the most happening place in Shimla
  • One of the famous meeting point in Shimla
  • This is one such place which is mostly overlooked by people visiting Shimla. The truth behind scandal point is unknown, between Maharaja of Patiala and English Girl. Though many locals will share their diverse thoughts in the matter. The point is ancient and beautiful in its own.
