India

This interactive photograph was taken during dusk from the roof balkony of the hotel landmark.

A short description about Shimla:

Not Mumbai, nor New Delhi, which became the most beautiful city in India but Shimla City. Shimla City is the capital of Himachal Pradesh which is also expressed as the summer capital of the King of England in India in 1864.

Shimla is a popular tourist destination in India which is often referred to as the "Queen of Hills," a term coined England. It is located in north-western Himalayas with an altitude of about 2200 meters. If you look at the location, Shimla City is also covered with pine forests, flowers, rhododendron, and oak trees and snow in the winter. Uniquely, here too there is the longest railway line Kalka-Shimla Railway.

In addition, the city is quite famous for its buildings with neo-gothic architecture from the colonial era. There is also a pile houses around the Shimla hills.

Shimla is located about 100 km from Chandigarh, the nearest large city, and 365 km from New Delhi, the capital of India.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
