The annual flower show is famous for the varieties of orchids on display, but throughout the year, one can come down to view the blue Venda orchids, celosia, chrysanthemum and paps. There is an artificial pond in the centre, with a small bridge across it, where visitors love to take pictures. The state government invites people not only from Sikkim, but from neighbouring states as well to participate in the show. 

The roundabout above White Hall has a statue of late Jawaharlal Nehru, the former Prime Minister of India. White Hall is named after Claude White, the first political officer of Sikkim, and was built in his memory in 1932. An example of typical British architecture, the White Memorial Hall is a sight to behold for anyone looking to get a feel of the Victorian days. The hall acted as the venue for all important functions in the region till 1960. The Ridge itself is a riot of colours and is lined with plants and trees. The best time to visit the entire area is between April and May.
