Darjeeling full of snow-capped mountains; with the mighty Kanchenjunga

Nestling in the grandeur and beauty of towering snow-capped mountains; with the mighty Kanchenjunga (King of the Mountains) dominating the somber, snowy sentinels, lies a jewel of a town -- elegant, sophisticated and incredibly beautiful; the name of Tibetan origin means where Indra's thunderbolt or scepter rested, (Dodi-thunder bolt, Ling-place). In Sanskrit, the name, derived from the world 'Durjay Ling', means 'Siva of invincible prowess, who rules the Himalayas'. The official name of the town is DARJEELING.

Darjeeling has known many masters: Sikkim, Bhutan, Nepal, and the British East India Company. Its longest links have been with Sikkim who ruled the area between the present borders of Sikkim and the plains of Bengal , including Darjeeling and Kalimpong till the beginning of the 18th century. The cozy drawing room of the Windamere Hotel has been the setting of a royal romance: local belle Hook Cook met her future husband, the then king of Sikkim.

Sikkim's hold over Darjeeling did not go unchallenged. In 06 the Rajas of Sikkim lost Kalimpong to Bhutan, the rest of the region was captured by the Gurkhas of Nepal. This brought the Gurkhas into conflict with the East India Company and following the war of 1814, the Raja of Sikkim was reinstated with his sovereignty and a pension of INR 3000 (later raised to 6000) guaranteed by the Company. Sikkim, including Darjeeling, became a buffer state between Nepal and Bhutan.
