Street Shopping

The Ridge road is a large open space, located in the heart of Shimla, the capital city of Himachal Pradesh, India. It runs east to west alongside the Mall Road, and joins it at the Scandal Point on the west side. On the east side, The Ridge road leads to Lakkar Bazaar, a wooden crafts market. The Ridge houses a large water reservoir which acts as the main supply of Shimla town.

The Ridge road is also the venue for Summer festival, government functions and local celebrations during New Year's Eve. Prominent landmarks on The Ridge include Christ Church, a neo-Gothic structure built in the 1850s, and a Tudorbethan-styled library building built in 1910. There are at least three statues on The Ridge; that of Mahatma Gandhi, Indira Gandhi, and Dr. Y.S. Parmar, the first Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh
