KALKA SHIMLA SECTION


Ambala Division is the proud custodian of "WORLD HERITAGE SITE-KALKA SHIMLA RAILWAY". The heritage status to KSR was awarded on 10th July, 2008 by UNESCO.
Shimla (then spelt Simla) was settled by the British shortly after the first Anglo- Gurkha war and is located at 7,116 feet(2,169m) in the foothills of the Himalaya. By the 1830s, Shimla had already developed as a major base for the British. It became the summer capital of British India in 1864, and also the Headquarters of the British army in India. The Kalka- Shimla Railway was built to connect Shimla, the summer capital of India during the British Raj, with the Indian rail system.
