Constructed in the 18th century by British wool traders during the British rule in India, Crockety is a majestic colonial bungalow that is open to public viewing. The bungalow stands as a symbol of British engineering and architectural excellence. Lying about 51 km from Darjeeling, it lies in the upper section of Kalimpong and is a quaint structure. The best time to visit here is from March to May and from September to November. People should generally avoid monsoons as the rainfall is quite heavy. Just behind Crockety is the home of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore. This is the place from where he broadcasted his poem “Janmadin” on the All India Radio on his birthday. It is one of the major tourist attractions in the area.
