Interesting Historical Hand Pump - Water Pole at Shimla
|Possibly historic water pump in Shimla|
Well, besides the obvious attractions I suggest you check out surprises hidden along the station and Ridge.
This appears to be a historical water pole or hand pump, and seeing by the ornate designs on pillar, lion heads and a crowned top, appears to be royal. Who knows these might have British history.
And who can say, that a long time back, what kind of building was at this spot….hmmm?
|The one pictured above is somewhere in the market.|
One more can be easily spotted. On the foot of Maa Kaali Mandir (you can spot the Temple’s foot by people bowing in respect at the wall), on the road right in front of the Army station. Though this one is the victim of regular recarpeting of road and only the head might be visible now.
Even if some day it disappears, it can be recovered by carefully breaking the corner of the road.
