Notes on the Geography of Northern India: Shimla: Photo 4
At the foot of the T and at the western end of the town stands the former viceregal lodge, a "lodge" only in the sense that Vanderbilt's mansion at Newport was a "cottage." First occupied in 1888, by Lord and Lady Dufferin, it was designed by long-suffering public-works-department engineers who had plenty of help from the future tenants. Rain on the side of the building shown here flows to the Bay of Bengal through the Ganges, while rain on the far side flows to the Arabian Sea, through the Indus. The wing on the right was added in 1913 to house the Council of State. Today, the entire building serves as the home of the Indian Institute of Advanced Studies.
