Only a small theatre, but one with a big history. Rs. 25 for foreigners with no camera and you will also get a guide to tell you about the astonishing history of the theatre. Must do in Shimla more »
Awesome location. It's night view is awesome. This huge complex is a popular monument which is situated in the middle of the busy lanes of the Mall road. The architecture of the complex is a Victorian Gothic style like the many other neo-Gothic buildings in Shimla. The theatre is designed by Sir Henry Irwin and is one of the oldest complexes in the state.
Gaiety is a great place if one wants to spend an evening in Simla and is able to get an entry to it provided you are a member or you know one of the members. The colonial architecture makes the place all the more enticing and the food is relatively cheap. They have a nice sitting area outside if you visit during day time and want to bask in the sun as evenings during winters can be quite chilly The food is not very expensive and they have a variety of snacks and food available
