The historical buildings of Shimla built during the British period are still working to keep the city alive as well as enhance its beauty.
Today we are talking about one such historical building town hall which is built between the ridge and mall road of Shimla.

It was designed by the Scottish architect James Ransom as a library. While the original town hall building was designed by Henry Irwin, who designed many other buildings in colonial India. In the year 2014 the historic town hall was renovated and worked in the same style in which this building was constructed.

That style is a very old style and even in today’s modern times people are adopting it because building according to the Gothic style because so much It is an old building but even today it is standing in the same way, but no extra work has been done on it in any sense, but it has been constructed according to the Gothic style.
No, in which little wood work has been done because the style of making remained the same, but in this you must have seen that if there is a little extra rain, it also causes a lot of damage because it cannot put extra roof in it, cannot exceed it. Due to which it also has a little damage due to rain because the wood is not able to survive, it has been renovated to make it in the same style as it was prepared before, because it still has many shortcomings but That much extra he cannot be flirted with.
Significantly, the original town, hall, building was built in 1860 and its construction work was completed in 1888. Later the British rule changed its form. This building connects the surrounding architecture which is reminds us of the pre-independence era.
