RIDGE PARK IS NOW PALDEN THONDUP NAMGYAL PARK

GANGTOK, November 22: In an effort to preserve the cultural heritage of the State, and perhaps pay a befitting tribute to the last Chogyal, the Sikkim Government has decided to name an area in the Capital in his memory.

The Ridge Park, near the White Memorial Hall, and arguably the best locale Gangtok can boast of, will be now known as the Palden Thondup Namgyal Park.

The State Government has been notified this vide Notification No.18/GOS/FEWMD, dated 20.11.2007 issued by the Forest Environment and Wildlife Management Department.

The Ridge Park area houses some important landmarks and buildings in the Capital besides the White Memorial House, like the Mintokgang, the Chief Minister's official residence, the Nehru Park and the Flower Show venue. The stretch also leads to the Tashiling Secretariat and of course, the Royal Palace. The Ridge is one of the greenest areas in the Capital and perhaps, the only open space in the town where one can stroll around admire the greenery and the surrounding views of the mountains.

The Ridge Park, presently, is in various stages of renovation and re-modelling. The wide Ridge road leading to the Palace Gate from the White Hall-Nehru Park junction is currently being restructured and in the process of being given a new look.

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
