Beautiful views

Hanuman Tok is located on a hill near the Gangtok city, near the 3rd mile check-post, just off the road to Nathula. It's maintained by the Indian army (the pujaris are soldiers :-) and everything is clean and maintained. There are multiple temples here of Hanuman, Ram, Shiva, etc. Although the temples themselves are plain, the setting of this place and the views of the surrounding hills & the city are awesome. And without the crowds, it feels very peaceful here.

Nice temple in the foothills

A nice and big temple situated at the foothills of the mountain. This place is an old temple and people consider to be a siddh peeth as Hanuman ji came and rested here while he was bringing sanjeevani plant for Lakshman ji.. The temple is developed recently and you can have a great view of Kanchenjunga mountains from the roof top. Nice murals and paintings are worth watching.
