Batasia Loop & War Memorial - Darjeeling

batasia loop - war memorial of darjeelinOn the way to Darjeeling from Siliguri by the famous Toy Train journey passes through the Batasia Loop (A Windy Place) and the War Memorial. This place is 5 kms. ahead of Darjeeling city and located in between Ghoom ( The highest point in the world where Locomotive Engines operate) and Darjeeling cities. Batasia Loop attracts people for spectacular view of Mt. Kanchenjunga & other snow capped Himalayan Peaks and watch the remarkable engineering marvel of Darjeeling Himalayan Railways where almost imperceptibly the railway line negotiates a circle and descends 1000 ft. in altitude. 

At the centre of Batasia Loop a War Memorial stands. This memorial was constructed by the  District Sainik Board, Darjeeling in commemoration of the brave Gorkha Soldiers, who sacrificed their life to protect the sovereignty  of the Nation since independence. This memorial was sanctified on 22nd March, 1995. Local people throng here to seel handicrafts and woolen items for tourists.
