Darjeeling which houses hundreds of site-seeing places and tourist attractions also houses beautiful observatory hill and Mahakal temple which is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The legend goes like this, Mahakal temple was once Dorjeling monastery which was built in the year 1765 by the lama Dorje Rinzing. This beautiful monastery was destroyed during Gorkha Invasions. After several years this monastery was rebuilt as Mahakal temple. It is considered as one of the major pilgrimage centres for both Hindus and Buddhist. Since this temple was previously a monastery hundreds of Buddhist monks and Hindu priests step into this temple daily and perform various types of rituals. Tourists who flock to this temple and other shrines near the temple also step into observatory hill. Visitors can see an entire range of peaks, Kanchenjunga and other silent valleys. The heart will melt when tourists enter this hill and watch the peaks and valleys. Mahakal cave is also very famous and pilgrims have to crawl to get inside it.
