Mahakal Temple is situated on the Observatory Hill in Darjeeling; the Mahakal Temple represents a unique amalgam of Hindu and Buddhist cultures. This Temple stands where the original Darjeeling Monastery was present in olden times, before it got destroyed in an invasion and was eventually shifted to a new location with a new name. According to beliefs, the Temple enshrines three Shiva Lingas, which got manifested on their own in the year 1782. This Temple has three gold-plated idols of the widely-worshiped trio of Hindu Gods – Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. On entering the Temple premises, the first thing that grabs the attention of devotees is the presence of Buddhist prayer flags. The chant of Hindu prayers and recitation of Buddhist scriptures form a spectacular ambiance, which is probably found only at this place.
