    While visiting the architectural structures here, you will often come across buildings which consist of 8 signs of Buddhism. Though tourists remain mostly unaware of the meaning behind each of these symbols, it is always good to know what they signify.


  • The two golden fish- to swim through various troubles in life

  • The parasol- to protect from suffering

  • The lotus- for a blooming life

  • The conch shell- indicates the sound of Dharma reaching everywhere for awakening humans from ignorance

  • The dharma wheel- represents the circle of life and karma

  • The banner of victory- for victory over evil

  • The eternal knot- represents the union of wisdom and compassion

  • The vase- for a healthy life



  1. Prayer Flags
    One of the most pretty and attractive features of opting for a Sikkim tour package is the presence of colours in the state. The roads and streets here are filled with prayer flags of numerous colours. Buddhists plant these flags for spreading positive vibrations across the country. Each of these flags is believed to purify the human soul.

  2. Weather
    Are you a late sleeper or a late riser? Sikkim is your ideal place to get yourself on track then. While morning hits the place by 4 am, it gets pitch dark by 6 pm in the evening, with the entire town retiring by 7 pm. Since the weather here is uncertain, there is no fixed time for rains. While the morning may witness rain, it may snow in the afternoon. Thus, you should carry an umbrella to avoid a drenched visit.

  3. Food
    People in the East prefer to have food which is simple and low on spice. Even “Thukpa”, their staple food consists of vegetable stew and plain noodles. Since potato is grown in abundance here, you will find potatoes in every food item. “Momos” are another popular food item and are available in three types- steamed, chilly and fried.
