Find the details about Mashobra
Mashobra, located at an altitude of 2500 m above sea level, is one of Asia’s largest watersheds with the Indus and Ganges on either side. It is a small town in the district of Shimla, in the state of Himachal Pradesh. It is surrounded with densely covered forests of oaks and pines.
Mashobra was built by Lord Dalhousie in the 18th century. It is found in the biographies of Lady Mountbatten and Lady Edwinas. Jawaharlal Nehru, the then Prime Minister, paid a visit to Lord Mountbatten, the Viceroy and then Governor General of India, and his wife Lady Edwina. Before 1948, Mashobra used to house one of the only two Presidential retreats in India. The other Presidential retreat is Rashtrapati Nilayam in Secunderabad.
Mashobra is visited by the President of India every year and during that period the main office shifts to the retreat at Chharabra. The building of the Presidential retreat is a completely wooden structure originally constructed in 1850. The Wildflower Hall at Chharabra was the residence to Lord Kitchener as well as Lord Ripon during the British Raj, now a property of Oberoi Hotels. Today Mashobra is a well-known tourist’s destination.
The villa of Chevalier Federico Pelite at Carignano is a famous picnic spot and was turned into a resort in 1920.
