Himachal Pradesh, the second state in our journey across India through flickr. It is situated south of Jammu & Kashmir, in the heart of Western Himalayas. It is also the location of Dharmasala, where the Dalai Lama currently resides-in-exile.
Shimla, the capital of Himachal Pradesh, is another popular city, a hill station which used to be the summer capital during British Rule. Shimla is also the place the famous Shimla Agreement between India and Pakistan was signed. Rudyard Kipling lived and worked in Shimla around 1885, and his experiences in Shimla were the basis for most of the stories in his book, “Plain Tales from the Hills“.
Let us take a look at this beautiful and little known state of Himachal Pradesh through the following photographers on flickr:
