Gaiety Heritage Cultural Complex reviews
After lunch we visited this still operating theatre. It has a history dating back to the raj and maharajas. It is a small and charming example of exclusive gatherings. A brief visit worthwhile.

Dating its history back to 122 years, the Gaiety Heritage Cultural Complex in Shimla was designed by a renowned British Indian architect, Henry Irwin. Initially, it was a five-story building with a ballroom, a police office, an armoury, a theatre, a bar and galleries. However, after two decades of its construction, the structures were found to be extremely unsafe and unstable. Although most of the parts were demolished, the Gothic-styled theatre remained untouched. Later, the renovation added the art gallery, the theatre, the multi-purpose hall, the museum and the exhibition hall to the existing complex. Today, the venue is used for organizing numerous cultural programs along with displaying ancient or historical art. paid entry ranging from 10 to 50. opens all day accept Sundays. last visited feb 2021
