The Ridge street is a vast open space, situated in the heart of Shimla, the capital city of Himachal Pradesh, India. The Ridge is the center of every single social activitie of Shimla. It is arranged along the Mall Road, which is the acclaimed strip mall of Shimla. Most real places of Shimla such as Snowdon, Mall, Jakhoo slope, and so forth are associated through the Ridge.
It runs east to west close by the Mall Road, and goes along with it at the Scandal Point on the west side. On the east side, The Ridge street prompts Lakkar Bazaar, a wooden artworks market. It’s the significant historic point and the most effectively perceived face of the slope station. At the point when winter sets in and when the nation had its first real snowfall of the year, most news papers printed photographs of the edge submerged in clusters of new snow.
Unmistakable points of interest on the Ridge are a neo-Gothic structure of Church from 1844 and a tudorbethan styled library building worked in 1910. There are three statues on the edge; that of Mahatma Gandhi, Indira Gandhi, and Dr. Y.S. Parmar, the principal boss pastor of Himachal Pradesh.
The greatest hillstation of the world, at one time the base edge of Shimla had the thickest woodland of the range, now the green inclines are secured with firs, pines, the Himalayan oak and carmine rhododendron trees, among which are dabbed red-roofed chalets, half-timbered houses and Gothic Government structures are noticeable from The Ridge.
