This stupendous structure ringed by pine woods standing tall on the observatory hill at the western end of Shimla ridge was built in the 19th century as the residence of Viceroy Lord Dufferin.

Now known as the Rashtrapati Niwas or the President’s residence, it has a brilliant style of construction with a typical British flavour to it. 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. This magnificent building was also featured as Rani Mukerji’s college in the National Award winning movie Black in 2005.
