New Jalpaiguri Overview

Located near Siliguri in West Bengal, New Jalpaiguri is a major railway station, which is managed by the North East Frontier Railways. It is located 2.5 km away from the town of Siliguri in Darjeeling District. Situated in the plains, at the base of the Himalayas, this destination connects Gangtok, Darjeeling, Kalimpong, Kurseong and Mirik to the rest of India.

Before 1835, when the region was taken over by the East India Company from Sikkim, it was part of Sikkim and Nepal. Prior to that, in 1814, the Anglo-Gorkha war broke out in the region and resulted in the defeat of the Gorkhas. In 1815, the Sugauli Treaty was signed and the Gorkhas were asked to surrender all the occupied territories to the British East India Company.

Later in 1817, according to the Treaty of Titalia, the British East India Company gave away land between the Mechi River and the Teesta River, to the Chogyal of Sikkim. In 1835, Darjeeling along with the area of 360 sq km, was bestowed to the British East India Company. Darjeeling District, which encompasses New Jalpaiguri, was later formed in 1866.

The major populace of the region comprises Bengalis and other minor communities like Gorkhas, Marwaris and Biharis. Some of the migrants from erstwhile East Bengal have also come to the region in search of livelihood. Durga Puja, Lakshmi Puja, Christmas and Kali Puja are some of the major festivals celebrated here.

The prime attraction of the destination is Mahananda Weir Wildlife Sanctuary, which is a home to various wildlife and bird species. Salugara Monastery and Coronation Bridge are some of the other attractions of the region.

Bagdogra Airport, which is connected by flights to Bengaluru, Chandigarh, New Delhi, Kolkata, Guwahati, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangkok and Paro, is the nearest airport. New Jalpaiguri Junction Railway Station, which is under the administrative control of North East Frontier Railways, is the nearest railhead. Tenzing Norgay Central Bus Terminus is the closest bus station, which connects the destination to nearby places like Darjeeling, Gangtok, Kurseong, Kalimpong, Mirik and Jorethang, by bus service.

The best time to visit New Jalpaiguri is from mid-September to mid-December.
