Shimla, (2159) one of India's most famous hill stations, derives its name from Goddess Shyamala. The British discovered Shimla in the form of a little village in 1819. Shimla one of India's best destinations.

Depart Shimla by Jeep in the morning, arriving Sarahan in the evening. On the way visit Rampur Palace, the Padam Palace built in a charming mix of Indian and colonial styles.

It is also having the Nathpa-Jhakri hydel power project, which is going to be the largest in Asia.

Sarahan is flanked on the banks of the meandering Sutlij River. Located amidst Deodar forests, Sarahan was the ancient capital of the mighty Bushahr. It's a belief that Sarahan is the Shonitpur of old times, and this was the place, where Banasura once ruled. The Bhimakali temple is built in Indo-Tibetan architectural style; it is one of the finest examples of Himachali architecture and is dedicated to Lord Narsingha and Lord Raghunath. This temple is the main attraction of the region and is decorated silver. Apart from the main deities, this temple has images of various Hindu and Buddhist Gods. It is also one of the last few surviving temples made entirely of timber. Lanka Vir Temple, Situated next door to the Bhimakali temple, this was where human sacrifices were made long ago to please Goddess Bhimakali. The bodies were apparently thrown into the well nearby.

Once in Sarahan, one beholds a range of the snow-capped Himalayan peaks and one of them is the Shrikhand Peak. The rather peculiar thing about this peak is that it is only one, whose tip remains uncovered with snow. In the evening, sunrays adorn the peaks and the sight is simply stupendous.
