Only a few know that Shimla gets its name from one such religious place. Once a tiny village discovered by the British in the late 1800s, this charming and one of the most popular hill stations in North India Shimla derives its name from Shyamala Devi, an incarnation of goddess Kali that the locals revere. Kali Bari Temple - where Shyamala Devi presides as a local deity - is one of the most significant and famous temples in Shimla.
But along with Shyamala Devi temple, there are some very popular and lost visited religious sites in Shimla, including Christ Church, the oldest church constructed in North India; Tara Devi Temple, Bhimakali Temple, one of the 51 Shakti peeths, Jakhu Temple, famous for having the highest statue of Lord hanuman installed in its premises.
