Only Road in India where 4 Wheeler or 2 Wheeler not allowed. Your children may play on road including you. Enjoy Gulab Jamun of Baljee's and take veg dinner at Gupta Vaishav Bhojnalaya. Shoping available but its costly because U r prepare to spent. Buy Local wine of apple or Grapes if you want to gift or carry.

The Mall Road in Shimla is a highly over-rated place. To reach the place one has to park the car in a over crowded parking area and take 2 lifts to reach the Mall Road. The place is over crowded and has nothing exceptional to offer. The shops sell Cheap chinese goods and the shops selling Indian clothes and shawls are over-priced and lack the quality one expects to see in a hill-station.

Even though I am a nationalist, we should tank the English for this! The Mall is the place to be in Shimla. The view, the architecture of the adjacent buildings, the horse rides, the parks and the flea market all add to the intricate appeal of this place. With a little more planning and perhaps a little less crowd on the streets this will be a great place to have evening walks. The Lift from the base to the top of the mall is a real feat and thanks to the people who envisaged this. Enterprising locals also offer you prams rented by the hour to carry your kids (believe me without this it would be quite a drag to carry kids to the top). With Macdonalds and KFC around the corner the old charm is a little lost but still the mall in the evening, overlooking the whole valley is the sight to behold!

The Mall is the main shopping street of Shimla. It also has many shops, book stores, toy shops, restaurants, snacks shops, ice cream parlors, bars, showrooms, department stores and cafes. Post Office, tourist office, municipal corporation, fire service and police headquarters are also located here. Automobiles, except emergency vehicles are not allowed on this road. For this reason, the locals and the tourists are often found strolling on this road in the evenings. Evening time is best to see colours on the Mall. The main attractions on The Mall are Scandal Point, Gaiety Theatre, Kali Bari Temple and Town Hall. The best way to explore it is to go for the Heritage Walk on the Mall.
