Rothney Castle is a part of Shimla’s historic heritage. Located on the highest peak of Jakhu, this castle was once the residence of an early theosophist, Allan Octavian Hume. Today, this castle functions more or less like a museum where you can see huge reception rooms meant once meant for the British dinner parties and balls. On display are Indian horns which are of much interest to the foreign tourists as well. A part of this castle has been converted into a heritage hotel where you can book your stay.
