Baba Harbhajan Singh Memorial Temple, Gangtok
(4/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Visit a holy place high up in the mountains at Baba Harbhajan Singh Memorial Temple, built to honor a 27-year-old soldier who died while posted close to the Sino-Indian border. Singh's death in 1968 has remained the subject of myth and spiritual belief: the official version suggests that he was killed during a skirmish on a mountain pass between Tibet and Sikkim, but others state that he perished in a glacier. Legend has it that he visited one of his colleagues in a dream and asked him to build a shrine here in his memory. The shrine has become a moving tribute and a place of pilgrimage, particularly for service personnel. Put Baba Harbhajan Singh Memorial Temple into our Gangtok trip builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Gangtok.
