  • Tibetan Refugee Self Help Centre, one of the prominent landmarks of Darjeeling, was established on 2nd October 1959. It serves as a residence of several Tibetan refugees who fled from their homeland following the footsteps of their spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama. A visit to this self-help centre allows you to gain insight into the living of these refugees, who earn their livelihood by selling their art. Visitors can see Tibetan craftsmen at work in these shops, making exquisite handicraft items. They can purchase a variety of items like carpets, woollen coats and blankets, which is also exported to over 36 countries across the world.  Apart from shops, the centre has a small nursery school for kids, X-Ray clinic, pathology laboratory and dental clinic. Besides, a host of welfare, religious and educational activities along with medical programmes are also organised at this centre from time to time.
