  • Simple, serene & peaceful place, even with the hustle of multitudes of tourists on a busy day. Combine your visit with Hanuman Tok, and some other places of tourist interest in this part.  more »
  • Nyc and small Temple.... not so much to see.... visit if u have time.... hanuman tok is better than this  more »
  • The view point has a temple and offers good views of Gangtok if weather is clear. I landed here on a cloudy day so not much to see other than Ganesha temple there.  more »

  • Not much itself in the place(Ganeshji Temple) but the road towards it it just so beautiful (visit early morning before sunrise and you will see the golden Himalaya/my personal favorite).. Also a spooky house nearby which is often unvisited
  • Hindu Temple with a Buddhist twist. Serene and peaceful. Has a good view of the valley below after 9am. It is foggy but also very peaceful in the early mornings.
  • Very good place, a lot of tourists. Outside of this building you can rent local dress...
  • After Ganesh darshan you can view beautiful city view which you will never forget. But it is very crowded with tourists and different vendors.
  • Nice vibe and wonderful view from the top of the temple. You can spot the whole city from there. Beautiful and different sanctuary. Worth stopping by.
