Located in the heart of the city, the Mall Road in Shimla is one of the busiest shopping areas in this area. Built by the British during colonial rule in India, the Road Mall is a popular destination to walk around as no traffic is permitted. The Theatre of Gaiety has a special place on the road to Mall. People enjoy being here. They soak in sunshine, taste street foods and stroll leisurely. It becomes a sort of playground of kids. Watching honeymoon couples, immersed in each other, is a frequent scene.
