Introduction

Chowrasta Square is located at the top of Darjeeling Hill and is a favorite gathering place for backpackers and a must-visit for tourists going to other attractions. The square has a small fountain and a stable in the center for visitors to ride horses and enjoy the view of the hill. The surrounding restaurants, tea shops, and handicraft stores are great places to shop, where you can buy Tibetan and Nepalese-style shawls, blankets, and handicrafts. The square is also home to two famous state-run tea shops, Golden Tips Tea Cosy and Nathmull's Tea Cosy, as well as the largest Oxford Bookstore in the area. In the evening, there are often local folk cultural performances on the makeshift stage, which can be watched for free. The square is a reference landmark and transportation hub for Darjeeling.
