It is also known as Barbotey Rock Garden which is surrounded by beautiful mountain streams and slopes with attractive flower gardens and seating arrangements on different levels. Darjeeling is considered to be the most preferred sightseeing destination for nature lovers visiting Darjeeling.


    Built by the Gorkha Hill Council Tourism Department, it was inaugurated by GNLF supremo Subhash Ghisingh. In the conventional sense Rock Garden is not one.

There is also a small lake. Lots of tourists, tea stalls and snack kiosks have sprung up.
