"Shimla", which is named after the Hindu Goddess, Shyamala Devi, an incarnation of Kali, which is also the capital and therefore the largest city of the northern Indian state Himachal Pradesh.
In 1864, also known as "Queen of Hills" in India, Shimla was declared as the summer capital of British India.
The tapestry of Himachal is woven with the most exquisite natural scenery and more than 7000 feet above sea level are lovely hills of Shimla, where it is situated the quaint hill station and capital of the state.
 Shimla evocative ambiance may be a blend of the fantastic past and a vivacious present before India achieved independence, Shimla was the summer capital of British India and the hill station was the principal destination of the sahibs and the memsahibs as they made their way to the cool mountain air of this region, many a legend and myth still survives about the high flown social lifetime of these expatriates.
It encircled the variety of buildings that are styled within the Tudorbethan and neo-Gothic architectures which date back from the colonial era, also the multiple temples and churches. The colonial architecture and churches, the temples and the natural environment of the city attracts tourists. The mall in Shimla was often the focal point for all social interludes, till today the mall remains the riot of color where holidaymakers spent every evening and therefore the lively atmosphere is heightened by the local band which plays every summer to entertain the tourists.

However, since this airport isn't functional throughout the year, hence it's advisable to settle on Chandigarh or Delhi as connecting airports. People coming by air till Chandigarh like better to book cabs to succeed in Shimla, which can take 3-4 hours. There are regular buses too. From Delhi airport, it roughly takes around 7-8 hours to arrive in Shimla.
Railways:- The nearest broad gauge railway station from Shimla is the Kalka Railway Station which is only 90 km away. Chandigarh Railroad station is additionally just 113 km far away from Shimla.

It takes around 5-6 hours from Kalka to arrive here by train, but it is a magnificent journey with tonnes of tunnels and scenery which makes up for the extra time taken on the route.
