  • When in Shimla, this is a must visit place. It has immense historical importance. The fire proof system here used wax as sensors. The interiors of high quality wood are amazing. The gardens outside are also very good and well maintained.

  • Beautiful place and we'll maintenance. Only 10rs entry fee with guide. Parking is available for free. Restaurant is not of couple

  • Must Visit in Shimla... The Architecture, the lawns, interior everything is classy... No photography is allowed inside the Viceregal Lodge and Gallery. Try the Fire Station Cafe... It's good and not at all expensive...

  • I ran into this place with a lot of expectations and I must say that I am utterly disappointed. Firstly, three-fourth of this place is an institute which is closed for visitors. The ball room where the dance parties of the British were held is now a modern library.Wait, the worst is yet to come, the remaining one forth navigable part comprises of a dining hall(which is no more a dining hall) having walls covered with a hundred photos of congress leaders.I came this far hoping to get a dash of the lifestyle of the viceroy and his summer house but sadly the government has ruined it. Instead of preserving the British heritage they have destroyed it.WASTE OF TIME AND ENERGY. DON'T VISIT IF YOU ARE A HISTORY ENTHUSIAST.
