Stroll down The Ridge, a huge walkway running alongside Mall Road, a famous shopping center. The west end of the walkway joins with this major road, with the east end housing a bazaar filled with wooden crafts. In between, the walkway abounds with shops, food vendors, and landmarks. Keep your eyes peeled for a 19th-century neo-Gothic church and an early 20th-century library. You can also locate three statues of important local figures: Mahatma Gandhi, Indira Gandhi, and Dr. Y.S. Parmar, the first chief minister of Himachal Pradesh. Make The Ridge a centerpiece of your Shimla vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Shimla trip planning site.

A large open space in the center of Shimla and key attraction to tourists. The Ridge road towards east leads to Lakkar bazar and other side to western join of mall road and to Vidhansabha.
