Shimla in Photographs...

In December, I happened to visit Shimla in Himachal Pradesh. It was my second visit to the place, this time with the family of my maternal uncle. With a hope to see snowfall which I have never encountered before rather none of us had, we decided December to be the best time for the same. Our excitement levels were high but like before this time too there was no snow-fall. Rather we were welcomed with the clear and warm sunny days which was unavailable in Delhi that time. Here I am sharing a few Photographs of the place that you may enjoy. If you plan to visit Shimla do not miss Indian institute of advance Studies.

Temple of Tara Devi which I didn't explore before served picturesque views. It was standing beautifully on a mountain cliff.

In my last blog about Shimla I mentioned my visit to Indian Institute of Advance Studies. I hvisited this beautiful place once again. It was lovely as ever, though this time with a little snow here and there.

It was built in 1884 as a home for Viceroy of India, which later on in 1965 was established as research Institute. The architecture inside is quite magnificent and mesmerizing
