Gangtok pronunciation (ยท i) is the capital and largest city in the state of Sikkim in India. Located in the foothills of the Himalayas at an altitude of 1,780 meters, the city is famous for its clean surroundings and temperate climate. This mountain resort, with an estimated population (2002) of 50,000, is the center of the state's tourism industry. Gangtok was only a small enclave to the construction of the Monastery Enchey in 1840 that turned the city into a center of pilgrimage. It became the main point of stop for those traveling between Tibet and British India in the late nineteenth century. After independence of India in 1947, Sikkim became a nation state with its capital at Gangtok. In 1975 the monarchy was abolished and Sikkim became the 22 th state of India. Gangtok remained its capital. Not much is known about the early history of Gangtok. The first records date from 1716. It was not until 1716 with the construction of the monastery Gangtok Enchey that began to gain importance. After the defeat of the Tibetans by the British, Gangtok became a major stop on trade between Tibet and India. Most roads in the area and the telegraph were constructed during this period (late nineteenth century).
