Haunted house in Shimla! #fantasy #heritage

Wandering a bit off the Mall Road in Shimla stands a dilapidated rambling huge house. It must have been stunningly beautiful in its hey days and one can see that the owners have tried to rebuild the front porch and one side of the house at some point. But at this time it stands forlorn and abandoned, very much the quintessential haunted house! I’m almost glad they didn’t build further. From what I can see, they would have probably totally modernized the building.

I loved staring at the house, clicking these pictures and imagining the life of this lovely old building. In reality these are two separate structures on what appears to be a single property, but for fantasy’s sake let’s imagine them to be a single haunted house and enjoy the ghost stories running around inside our heads!

I love expressing myself and feel strongly that cities should have spaces for everyone--rich, poor, young, old, healthy and sick, happy or depressed--we all need to work towards making our cities liveable and lovable communities.
