The wild Shyamala, the local name for the goddess Kali, was the summer residence of the Raj before it became known as Shimla, one of India's most popular hill stations and resorts. Today, it is the capital of the Himachal Pradesh, a favoured summer haunt for visitors as well as the rhesus macaque! Admire the Jakhu Temple, dedicated to Hanuman, the monkey god.
