Our guide brought us to a Tibetan Festival, a small folksy affair where the Tibetans put on a goodwill show and fair, with local dignitaries present. Their dancing was interesting, and the performance of the little children in particular amused me.
The tourist section of Shimla is at the peak where the old British buildings still stand, and where Scandal Point with its story of the elopement of a maharaj with the daughter of a British Viceroy continues to be told.
The Viceregal Lodge is the most remarkable building there. It is grander than a lodge of course. It's a huge, sprawling Gothic stone structure, with turrets and rooms, and gardens surrounding the structure. The grandeur of past years have dimmed but the pictures on the walls, and the teak wood on the walls, and chandeliers and other remaining furniture, remind you of the elegance of this place. The Viceregal Lodge was where Viceroys and Governor-Generals lived. Many historic events took place here, including the partition of East and West Pakistan.
