In 1763, a Tibetan monk built a monastery at Observatory Hill. The name of the monk was Rinzing Dorji Legden La. The Tibetans named the place after the monk Dorji -Ling meaning
"Place of Dorji". and hence the name Darjeeling. In Sanskrit, the word " Durjay Ling" means Shiva of invincible skill who rules the Himalayas.
