Rabdentse Ruins

Around 3 kms from Pelling and couple of minutes walk further down from Pemayangtse Monastery are the Rabdentse ruins the second capital of Sikkim, established in the year 1670. The spot has stunning perspectives inundated with history all around. All around secured remains with clear signs of the rooms and other areas. These remnants are accessed by a short wooden walk which is extremely wonderful. The stroll from the sanctuary to the remnants will simply make your day. But these remnants have a story to tell. Its a half kilometer stroll from the main street perhaps a little more. In any case, once there, your effort is justified. Everywhere in this place you will see what remains. Not a large territory to cover so it's manageable by walking and on the off chance that you stroll up here from Pelling, you may have a decent half day trip. This spot is genuine amazement, regardless of the possibility that somebody is not excited to watch historical ruins, he can still visit for stunning perspectives.

Rabdenste Ruins: Located close to the Pemayangtse Monastery, Rabdentse was the second capital of the former kingdom of Sikkim from 1670 to 1814. The capital city was destroyed by the invading Gurkha army and only the ruins of the palace and the chortens are seen here now. Perched atop a ridge above upper Pelling the ruins primarily consist of “chunky wall stubs” whose heritage value is accentuated by its location. This former capital offers commanding views of the Kanchenjunga massif on one side and the mountains and valleys on the other side are visible.
