  • This temple was just like other Hindu temples usually are... part of the Gangtok sightseeing...nothing you can't live without.. but yeah... it had a view from the top... you could enjoy it only if there are no clouds...Nice place for photography provided weather is clear..good view from the point. Must visit if you planning for Gangtok tour. Neat and clean place. Good rituals been followed. The ambience is superb. You can find local items to purchase specially the traditional dresses known as honju. You will also find a scary house near to this temple. If you want you can visit that too. It is covered in the list if you book a cab for local sight seeing.
  • Was surprised to see the way the temple has been maintained. It provides a panoramic view of the city, we weren't able to enjoy the view as it was pouring. But an excellent place to visit.What can you say about a Ganesha temple... From a religious point of view, Maybe the first thing you should try, otherwise also, a great experience.. Nicely made and maintained
  • Ganesh Tok is located in Gangtok of Sikkim. The ganesha temple is famous for its construction and the place which its situated. All devotees brave the cold to stand here barefooted. Ample parking, window shopping stalls etc dot the scenery. Visit to know more.
  • The maintenance of the temple is very good. The scenic beauty is awesome if the weather is clear.
  • There's a temple and a nice view point. There are a few stalls around and a paved parking lot as well. This place is really nice with bright colours on the viewpoint tower. Whole of Gangtok is visible from here. We spent about 2 hours here including the time for a quick meal. Would definitely recommend it.
