“Beautiful ground in the valley surrounded by Deodar trees”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Developed as the playground of Shimla, Annandale is 4 km from The Ridge at a height of 6,117 ft situated in the village Kaithu. It is a very big beautiful ground, but not meant for playing as it comes under the Indian Army. The main attraction is Army museum. The museum is closed on Mondays and other national holidays. Evening closing time is around 4pm. So reach early. We missed it. Just able to see the playing ground, Golf Course, Helipad, Club, old tanks etc. with the help of some army officers. One has to go down from Vidhan Sabha (The State Assembly) to reach here.

“So well-maintained”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

We went to Annadale on a misty morning as the Army Museum had been very highly recommended to us. & I realised why it was so once I stepped inside the premises. The Army Museum has the history of the Indian Army written down in manuscripts, its evolution over the years, its significant achievements, its regiments and their insignia & uniforms, its involvement with the environment etc. The place evokes a sense of awe & pride. The premises are owned by the Indian Army and very well-maintained. A little further ahead is the Annadale golf course which is kept in a pristine condition. Difficult to believe this beautiful, quiet place is within Shimla!

“A must visit for every Visitor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

A really well maintained Golf Ground right amidst the Shivaliks. 4 Kms down into a sprawling valley , this Army Golf Club is a must on every nature lover's itinerary. And an Army Museum and Cactus Garden is an added attraction !
