Simla (also known as Shimla) is the mountainous and beautiful hillside town that was both the former summer capital of (British) India and former capital of Punjab. Filled with delightful architecture, the town is also surrounded by seven hills; the stunning scenery is depicted here, with just the faintest trace of civilization depicted through the lights visible on the mountainside.
