" Home to the world's highest cricket and polo ground, this picture-perfect hill station is an amazing retreat destination. Away from the maddening crowds of the city, this piece of paradise is in close proximity to the more popular Shimla. The city boasts a royal legacy, visible in its few but grand buildings."
