This study attempts to explore, within a historical framework, the varied factors that led to Simla becoming, initially, an important sanatorium and health resort for British civilians and soldiers; and consequently to its choice, by successive governor-generals and viceroys, as a refuge from the heat of the plains, till it became the official summer capital of the British Raj, and assumed the character of a "little England."

"Imperial Simla disperses much of the fog that has obscured our view of this imperial capital."--Albion
