Lovely little temple

Tucked away behind the Darjeeling Railway station this is small charming temple dedicated to Lord Shiva built by Nepali Kings - sneak in when you wait for your train.

The temple is located just adjacent to Darjeeling Railway Station. It's a small Shiva Temple, laid out on lines of Pashupati Nath Temple in Kathmandu. The temple precincts have a lovely garden. The views of the snow clad mountains from the back of the temple are simply beautiful.

Dhirdham temple is a small, elegant, and colorful temple just below the train station. The enclosed area surrounding the temple is not much bigger than the temple itself and it has ample seating areas and flower plantings. Needless to say it's a peaceful enclave. Taking photographs northward is a special pleasure with the glacier covered mountains looming over the sanctuary.

This small Hindu temple near the toy train station doesn't have much to offer-- a tiny sanctuary for the deity, a bit of a view of the town. If you are at the train station you might as well wander on in, but no need to make a destination of it.

Historic temple very close to Darjeeling railway station. A must go for religious Hindu tourists. Parking is an issue as the area in front of the temple is no parking zone.

Dhirdam Temple is a Shiv Mandir at Darjeeling just near the Toy Train station. It is a miniature model of the Pashupatinath Temple in Kathmandu. It depicts a large statue of Shiva in various mood and look. This temple has got history worth knowing.
