Takdah's original name was pronounced 'Tukdah,' a Lepcha term that means mist or fog. And the name is suitable, as the area is frequently shrouded in fog. Takdah began as a military cantonment during the early days of British colonial rule in the early 1900s. Many prominent British officers visited this location on a regular basis back then. As a result, many bungalows and homes sprouted up here to serve as lodging. Those houses were constructed in classic British style, with slanted roofs. Nearest tourist spot Rungli Tea Garden, Orchid Center, Takdah Monastery, Heritage Bridge, Tinchuley Sunrise Point, Lamahatta Village.
