One of the important spots to visit during a Shimla tour is The Peterhof bungalow in which at least seven viceroys and Governor Generals had lived during Britishraj, the first of them being Earl of Elgin who occupied this place in 1863. After Independence this building was converted as Punjab High court and it is in this spot where Nathu Ram Godsey, who assassinated Mahatma Gandhi was tried.
