Situated at a height of 2,206 metres (7,238 feet), Shimla is the former summer capital of the British in India and the current capital of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. The city's name has its origins in a local deity—Shyamala Devi, a goddess whose temple is located in the densely wooded hill region known as Jakhoo. Shimla is the largest hill station in the world associated with the 'Old Raj' (British colonial empire). Now home to a variety of well-respected colleges and a major tourist hub, Shimla has always enticed and cast a spell on visitors who walk up these slopes.
