Shimla is the capital of the northern Indian state of Himachal
Pradesh, in the Himalayan foothills. Once the summer capital of British
India, it remains the terminus of the narrow-gauge Kalka-Shimla Railway,
completed in 1903. It’s also known for the handicraft shops that line
The Mall, a pedestrian avenue, as well as the Lakkar Bazaar, a market
specializing in wooden toys and crafts.
