Sikkim is an Indian state located in the Himalayas surrounded by land. Sikkim is a popular tourist destination owing to its culture, scenic beauty and bio-diversity.

Legend has it that the Buddhist saint Guru Rinpoche visited Sikkim in the 9th century; he introduced Buddhism and forecasted the era of the monarchy. Consequently, the Namgyal dynasty was established in 1642. Over the next 150 years, the kingdom witnessed frequent raids and territorial losses to Nepalese invaders. It allied itself with the British rulers of India but was soon commandeered by them. Later, Sikkim became a British province and was merged with India following a referendum in 1975.
