It is limited by Mandi and Kullu in the north, Kinnaur in the east, the province of Uttaranchal in the south, Sirmaur, region in the west. The topology of the area is rough and extreme. Shimla area gets its name from Shimla town which was before a little town. Shimla region in its current structure appeared from first Sept,1972 on the redesign of the locale of the state.

The previous summer capital of the British in India, and the current capital of Himachal Pradesh, Shimla has been honored with all the normal bounties which one can consider. It has a grand area, it is encircled by green slopes with snow topped pinnacles. The marvelous cool slopes joined by the structures made during the pilgrim time makes an emanation which is totally different from other hill.Bulging at its creases with extraordinary development, Shimla holds its provincial legacy, with stupendous old uildings, enchanting iron light posts and Anglo-Saxon names. The Mall,packed with shops and restaurants, is the fundamental fascination of the town, and Scandal Point, related with the previous Maharaja of Patiala's ventures, offers a perspective on far off snow clad peaks.Shimla is obviously found, and however there is an air administration to the town, it is best reached by street that takes in the charms of the HIMALAYAN field at its best. There is a feeling of sentimentality about SHIMLA, with its old cottages and their gabled rooftops and excellent gardens.
