The Ridge is a meeting area in the centre of Shimla which runs between Scandal Point and Christ Church. It's a large open area which is the watershed for the city and houses a large water reservoir that supplies the entire city.
Standing at either side of the Ridge, visitors can see panoramic views of the mountains to either side. The Ridge has food stands, horse rides for children and other amusements. There are statues of important figures such as Mohatma Gandhi and Indira Gandhi as well as the first Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh.
A Summer Festival is held on the ridge and it is also used for New Years Eve celebrations.
The Ridge can only be reached on foot as the centre of the city is barred to vehicles.
Scandal Point is a key meeting point in the centre of Shimla and was a place where young lovers congregated in the days of the British rule when Shimla was considered the most risque city in India.
Scandal Point is located on the Mall - the city's main pedestrian street - at the point where it intersects with The Ridge. The place takes its name from a scandal in which the Maharaja of Patiala ran off with the daughter of the Commander in Chief of the Imperial Army.
The key things to see at Scandal Point are the covered police stand and the statue of Lala Lajpat Rai but mostly it's a place to watch the crowds promenading around the streets.
Christ Church Shimla
Christ Church is the yellow church which stands on The Mall, next door to the library. It is one of the most prominent buildings in the city and can be seen for miles around due to its striking colour and its night-time floodlighting.
The Church was designed by Colonel JT Boileau in 1844 and was used regularly after its consecration in 1857. Today with the departure of the British who made Shimla their summer capital, there are few remaining worshippers using the church although a service still takes place on Sundays. The church is famed for its stained glass windows.
The church is not generally open except during services but the tourist office on The Mall may be able to advise visitors how to gain entry.
