Viceregal Lodge

, Shimla

Reviews

Located on the Observatory Hill at the western end of the Shimla ridge (4 km), the Viceregal Lodge is a humongous structure ringed by tall pines. It was built in 1888 as the residence of Viceroy Lord Dufferin. It can be reached by taxi or bus within 5 mins.

Located 2 km further west of the Himachal State Museum, it is now called Rashtrapati Niwas. The Lodge houses the Indian Institute of Advanced Study and is the only building in Shimla that occupies a hill by itself. Exploring the whole place will take around 1 hour.

The architecture of the lodge is brilliant. A grand staircase which springs from the right and spirals up three full floors marks the hall. A grand fireplace faces the main entrance. Verandas and terraces surround the entire building at different levels which allures tourists and make the lodge totally immaculate.
To visit and experience Shimla hassle-free, view package tours to shimla.
