Resorts of the Raj: Hill Stations of India
During their long occupation of India, the British built four metropolises. Within easy reach of these, nestled in the cool mountains, they built resorts to which they could escape for rest and recreation. Soon these became the summer capitals of the governors. This led to the vast network of roads, rail links and communications that allowed the British to rule from these comfortable surrounds. This became a major legacy of the British rule in the country, yet little has been published about them.
