Category:Hill stations in India
Hill stations in India is a term used for a town usually at somewhat higher elevations in colonial Asia, particularly in British India (British Raj), where towns have been founded by European colonial rulers up where temperatures are cooler, as refuges from the summer heat. In the Indian context most hill stations are at an altitude of approximately between 1,000 and 2,500 metres (3,500 to 7,500 feet); very few are outside this range. The British Raj, and in particular the British Indian Army, founded perhaps 50 of the 80-odd hill stations in the Indian subcontinent; the remainder were built by various Indian rulers over the centuries as places of leisure or even as permanent capitals. Several hill stations served as summer capitals of Indian provinces, Princely States, or, in the case of Shimla, of British India itself. Since Indian Independence, the role of these hill stations as summer capitals has largely ended, but many hill stations remain popular summer resorts in tourism.
