Notes on the Geography of Northern India: Shimla: Photo 1

world pictures Northern India: Shimla




Central Shimla stretches for about two miles along a narrow, east-west ridge in the foothills of the Himalaya. At the eastern end of the ridge, which rises to the hill known as Jakko (seen here on the right), the built-up area divides to form a T. The view here is from the southwest, looking northeast along the main ridge and the right-hand arm of the T. The left-arm of that T leads to Snowdon, the official residence of Lord Kitchener when, as Commander-in-Chief, he was Curzon's nemesis. The right-hand branch leads to Barnes Court, once the summer home of the governor of the Punjab. Everything off the T is on a very steep slope.
