Mysterious Scandal Point

Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, Himalayas, Kullu, Mandi

Each spot in India has its own intriguing story. Shimla is no exception. The popular Embarrassment point in Shimla is where Edge street meets the Shopping center road. There is a fascinating tale about how it got the name, Purportedly the Maharaja of Patiala went gaga for the little girl of the then Emissary of India, and without burning through much time he ran off with her from this very point. As a result of this, the English Government prohibited him from entering Shimla. The Maharaja answered by building himself another late spring capital in neighboring Chail and in this way showed contempt for the English not once but two times.
