Enjoy a view of the Himalayas and a city panorama amid lush greenery at Kali Bari Temple, a famous hilltop pilgrimage site and one of the oldest temples in Shimla. Painted in intense red, orange, and white colors, the temple houses a blue wooden image of the goddess Kali, hugely symbolic for devotees seeking holy blessings. Built upon the foundations of an old temple dedicated to the goddess Shaymala and discovered by British engineers in the early 19th-century, Bengali pilgrims converted the site into a Kali temple in 1845. During festival times, you can see the temple bustling with thousands of devotees.
