Mussoorie was never an official summer capital unlike Shimla - a hill station in the state of Himachal pradesh which was the summer capital of the British Indian government-and even unlike Nainital -the summer capital of the united provinces government in British India. Mussoorie always remained unofficial - for the affairs of the heart. It has always been a gossipy place - with an air of informality and a tradition of romance - The Honeymoon capital of India. An idyllic stroll through any of the meandering mountain roads of the town, on a clear and sunny day will bring you to some of the well known and not so well known spots - each with its own tales to tell - Landour Bazaar, Chaar dukaan, Lal tibba, Gun hill, the Camel Back cemetery, the Mussoorie Library, and of course the hotel Savoy Hotel - an historical edifice in itself. You may be able to recognise any or all of the old houses and estates or you may meet a descendant of some of the families of Mussoorie.
