Now it is time to visit the building of the Gaiety Theatre Heritage Complex. This is the hub of cultural activities in Shimla even today. A tour of the Victorian hall along with its art gallery and the ventilation tunnel (subject to open) and its stage where Rudyard Kipling performed once, is worth it. The ambiance of the hall takes you back to the bygone era. Go to the stage or just have a view of the hall from the Viceroys Box. Next, you will be taken to the upper gallery from there the Ariel view of the hall compelled you to drop your jaw.

After this, a visit to Scandal Point and a number of old buildings such as Gaiety theatre, General Post Office, Bantony, Betink’s Castle, Imperial Bank, Railway Board Building, and the view of Annandale Ground adds some more taste to your day.
