DARJEELING – THE QUEEN OF HILLS

Darjeeling is not doubt one of the most visited hills stations of India. Situated in the northern part of West Bengal, it borders with Indian states of Sikkim and Bihar, districts of Jalpaiguri and North Dinajpur of West Bengal and neighbouring countries of Nepal and Bhutan. Elevated at an altitude of 6700 ft in Mahabharata Range of Himalayan Mountains, this place is globally addressed as the ‘queen of the hills’.

One legend behind the naming of Darjeeling says it came from two Sanskrit words ‘Durjaya Linga’, representing almighty Lord Shiva. Another one says that two Tibetan words ‘dorje’ and ‘ling’, meaning the ‘thunder scepter of Lord Indra’ and ‘land’ respectively, were joined to name the place.
