WOODVILLE PALACE, SHIMLA
- Address:Raj Bhawan Road Shimla.Place:ShimlaCountry:IndiaZip Code:171002
The estate on which Woodville palace has been built was first occupied in 1865 by Sir William Mansfield, Commander in Chief of the Imperial Army. The palace was reconstructed in 1938 by the Rana of Jubbal, who brought in hundreds of expert artisans from far and wide to ensure the highest quality of craftsmanship. Raj Kumar Udai Singh of Jubbal, his grandson, opened a part of the mansion as a guest house in 1977.
Shimla, at 7000 ft, straddling several hills and surrounded by pine forests and apple orchards, was once the summer capital of the British Imperial Government. It is, to date, one of North India's most popular hill stations and has burgeoned far beyond the days when it was a little hill town with just a Mall and a scattering of summer residences.
