Formerly the summer capital of the British in India, Shimla derives its name from Shyamla, the goddess whose temple is situated in the thickly wooded hill region of Jakhoo. This is the largest hill station in the world associated with the 'Old Raj.' Located on the lower spurs of the Northwest Himalayas at a height of 2,206 metres, Shimla has always enticed and cast a rare spell on anyone who sets foot on these slopes.
