City Origins

Advent of Shimla as a city traces its root to 1822 when the Scottish civil servant Charles Kennedy built the first British summer home here.Later in 1864, Sir John Lawrence (Viceroy of India 1864 - 1869) decided to move the administration twice a year from Calcutta by making it the summer capital . Thus, from a single cottage hamlet Simla became the site of the Viceroy Council, the Imperial Secretariat, abode of Indian princes, foreign emissaries etc. , a legacy which is hard to ignore even today.
