Observatory Hill

Though the name can be deceptive, this is a sacred site for the Buddhists and the Hindu devotees. The hill is the original site for the Dorje Ling Monastery and it is from this monastery that the town got its name Darjeeling. Today, what remains in the monastery site are shrines and picturesque view of the prayer flags. A path down the hill leads one to a small cave which is dedicated to Mahakala and attracts Hindu devotees from around the country
