Garhwali Mess is one of the ancient heritage sites of Lansdowne. This building was constructed in 1888 by the British and later became a mess in 1892. This mess represents the rich heritage of the Indian Army and is regarded as a prominent museum in Asia. The museum has a rich collection of wild animal skin. There is a dial in this museum which directs the route to the peaks such as Nandadevi, Chaukhamba, Kamet and various other peaks of the Himalayas.
