History of the place
Darjeeling’s name gets from a religious community called Dorje Ling which was worked by the nearby tribals Denzongpas in 1765 for the benefit of the Chogyal of Sikkim. It is said that it was some time ago a position of love of the Rongs where three stone stand erect (Lung-Chok) till today. “Dorje” implies thunderbolt and “Ling” implies put. Lamentably the religious community was crushed by the attacking Gurkha Army in 1815. But the name remained the same and become famous as Darjeeling.
