Scenic views

This is a small and plain-ish Ganesh temple, surrounded by lots of shops selling snacks, souvenirs, photos, etc. But the main draw of this place are the scenic bird-eye views it offers of the Gangtok city spread across the surrounding hills. The Gangtok zoo is located bang opposite this place and that's also a good way to optimize your sightseeing.

Temple with mt. Kanchanjunga view

At that start of what was to be a very long day driving from Gangtok to Lachung, our driver decided to stop at this view point when we were barely even out of Gangtok. It's a nice enough place - a lot of steps to climb for a view that's not that different from many other spots. Small tea shop and souvenir stalls but little else to keey you there once you've grabbed a few photos.

Ganesh Temple

Ganesh Temple with a good view of the hills. Small traders outside sell the local handicrafts and rent costumes. The place is OK because it is a Mandir of Lord Ganesha. Apart from this nothing is there. You can see the city from the top and thats enough. The place offers a good viewpoint for the city of Gangtok

A must watch temple at Gangtok

Situated in the city, is a beautiful Ganesha temple having beautiful views of the entire city of Gangtok. The watchtower / TV tower can be seen from here which is centrally located in Gangtok from here. Just stand outside to have a look at the breathtaking views of the clouds and mountains and you will thank god that he gave you an opportunity to view these beautiful sights and scenes.

Ancient temple with attractive shopping options

It is worth visiting the place. A small shopping zone adjacent to the temple adds value for a traveler. Photographers are also available with local dresses and one may get his pictures in local attire. Mountain and valley view is also attractive from the temple area.

Beautiful location and temple is very nice

Nice place to see and some thing different to purchase. We can spend some time in the temple for peace of mind and we can explore the things. Different people are visiting. Shoe rack should be placed.

Unmatched architecture and natural beauty

Sightseeing was exiting. The architecture and the natural beauty was unmatched. Neatness, the discipline was the thing to watch and appreciate. Though the city is bit costly yet affordable. Transportation in normal condition is good. The best time to visit is Winter.
