The least populous state of India, Sikkim, celebrates its foundation day every year in May. The annual regional holiday for the Northeastern state is observed on May 16th. The state of Sikkim is notable for its biodiversity, along with being a host to Kangchenjunga, the highest peak in India. Sikkim Day is commemorated to honour the 'Paradise of Botanists' and its culture and traditions. The history of Sikkim becoming a part of India goes back to 1975, when the beautiful state was under the Namgyal dynasty. The then prime minister asked for the Indian help, which led to the Indian military deposing the Chogyal and abolishing the Sikkimese monarchy. After a referendum, the region became a part of our nation as its 22nd state.
