Shimla was the hill station forthe elite- all the minions of the Raj kept at bay from the innercircle, began bestowing the town with sobriquets such as MountOlympus and Home of the Little Tin Gods.

Strollingin Shimla :- The mostspectacular of the buildings that rose in the wake of the BritishEmpire's jump to the hills, was the former Viceregal Lodge that nowhouses the Indian Institute of Advance Study. It is the far side ofthe Lodge's estate that is rarely seen. Covered with oak andrhododendron trees through which slim firm lined paths slither andoffer glimpses of the snow-clad mountains.

Thereis the stump of a tree in the courtyard on which many prospectivesuitors and lovers tie red threads and wish what they will. On oneside is Shimla itself, and on the other you can see the flattenedhilltop of the airfield and a display of narrow valleys and gorges.
