Until 1814 AD, Rabdentse Ruins was amongst the second capital of the early monarchy of Sikkim, after Yuksom. It is located in proximity to Pemayangtse Monastery and is believed to be a site of archaeological importance. Besides, the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has affirmed it as the monument of national importance and is visited by people from all across the world.
Due to its location in the West Sikkim, the ruins offer a perfect view of the snow covered Kanchenjunga ranges, dense forest and the extremely soothing landscape, which is something that one cannot keep his eyes away from and is to be emblazoned in memory. Tourists can easily reach these ruins by trekking through the dense forest that extends from Pelling and moving to Geyzing, discovering its exquisiteness and charisma.
The ruins here are a part of the Buddhist pilgrimage that starts from the great Yuksom in Dubdi Monastery, then proceeds to Norbugang Chorten, Pemayangtse Monastery, goes on to Sangacheoling Monastery and finally ends at Khecheopalri Lake. Though this place has remained ruined for several years but recent excavations and changes have made this place a popular tourist spot.
