  • This church has a wealth of wall plaques which reflect the lives of the many British who lived in Shimla. It is also possessed of a beautiful organ - if you are lucky enough to have someone paying this instrument during your visit you will be transported. Moreover The Ridge, one of the most crowded and attracted place in shimla. Here you can roam around or sit for n numbers of hours easily and enjoy the weather and beauty of shimla. It's near to mall road and easily accessible. Activities likehorse riding etc are there to enjoy. Few eatables stall are der too.
