It is a junction or can say a gateway to the city. Beautiful place to be with many people setting around and watching a big LED screen fixed above the open air theater. It is a very big neat and clean place having adequate setting arrangements along side.

When four roads come and meet at a point you get Chowrasta. You can sit here and enjoy the tourists go about doing their tourist stuff. Ride a pony or watch live shows and events as it happens throughout the year. On a cold wintery day sit with a warm glass of tea and spicy alu dum.

Well made and kept place. Best part is no traffic is allowed. We went in rainly season and it was like moving in the clouds. Big giant TV screen never allows you to feel bored with tangy programmes.

The place is very well maintained and you can find a lot of things to buy. This place is the most popular place in Darjeeling. There are small street vendors selling toys, umbrellas and Winter wear.... More
