Mahakal Mandir - Review
Although a part of the deal that comes with Observatory Hill, Mahakal Temple stands out even as a singular attraction. It is located on the hilltop and is a lovely change from the bustling chowrasta. In between Chowrasta (the mall), the hill rises and promises you some amazing sights of the surrounding ranges. The best part about this temple is that it caters to all the faiths that are present in Darjeeling. The architecture of this temple is really humble and simplistic in nature, but even so it is a beautiful sight to watch and a great place to witness the presence of God. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Darjeeling itinerary 1 day.

Mahakal Mandir, Darjeeling Reviews
Very good temple, where you can get real silence and peace. Visit with family and kids, but beware of monkey. This place is very spiritual, it is temple of Lord Shiva. It is quite clean and graceful environment. I recommended to must visit there if you visit Darjeeling.
Mahakal Temple ... the name suggests, this place on a hill top is one of the greatest spots in Darjeeling to observe the panoramic views of the mountains and it also has a temple at the summit called the Mahakal Temple. The Observatory Hill is located at the Mall area and is encircled at its bottom by the Mall Road. As you walk along the Mall road, you will see this steep hill rising on one side. ... However, it's not too high. It takes about 15 minutes of uphill walk to reach to the top. While the walk may be tiring, the rewards are awesome. As you take the Mall road from the right side of Chowrasta Mall, about 100 yards away you will find flights of stairs that lead towards the Observatory Hill and the Mahakal Temple. There is a large signboard indicating the pathway.
EXCELLENT PANORAMIC VIEW OF SURROUNDINGS FROM THE TOP. A PEACEFUL AND CLAM PLACE. YOU NEED TO WALK UPHILL FOR AT LEAST 15 MINUTES TO REACH THE TOP. BEWARE, A LOT OF MONKEYS FILLS THE PLACE.
It's a temple of LORD SHIVA located in Mal, Darjeeling. You have to ride upwards thorugh the MAL FOOTPATH MARKET.... IT'S A PLACE WITH TOO MUCH TRANQUILITY. ONE CAN FIND TOO MUCH HAPPINESS THERE WHEN THE WHOLE VIEW OF THE CITY WILL BE WATCHED FROM THE TOP OF THE TEMPLE..... SO IT'S NOT ONLY A TEMPLE, ALSO A VIEW POINT. LOVE THIS PLACE TOO MUCH.....
Must visit place in Darjeeling. Its a divine place which gives a pleasure. Located on hill side needs u walk uphil to reach it. Beware of monkeys which are more in number
