  • 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.
  • While it's definitely a famous point in Shimla, I did not understand what the hype was about. There is nothing special to it and it's also easily missable.
  • Scandel point is very famous place of Shimla. It is crossing oof four different directions 1.Mall road 2. To Sanjauli and Jaakhu hills. 3. Kaali Baari Temple. 4. Railway station and Bus Stand.
  • Scandal point is one of the center point of Shimla.
  • Famous location....
