Baba Harbhajan Singh Memorial Temple - Review
Major Harbhajan Singh served in the Indian Army and lost his life while escorting a mule caravan from his battalion headquarters in Tekula to Dengchukla in 1968. Harbhajan Singh’s body was found when a soldier dreamt of him telling him exactly where to find the body.
Soon, the body was found and the shrine was made in the honor of the brave soldier. Today, it is said that Harbhajan Singh warns Indian soldiers of the upcoming attacks at the Indo-Chinese borders and even Chinese army men believe to have seen a human figure patrolling the border at night.
Today, the temple consists of a room where the personal belongings of Baba Harbhajan Singh are cared for and kept for worship.

Baba Harbhajan Singh Memorial Temple, Gangtok Reviews
It's a great place where you'll find everything from a cafe, a souvenir shop, a parking place to breathtaking views of mountains and hills along with the big Shiv statue located on top of a nearby mountain with waterfall in back. Simply breathtaking. The only reason I'm reducing a star is lack of clean and functional public toilets.
This temple is situated between the mountains again guarded by our esteemed Indian Army *Salute*, low in oxygen. Nice history to know about Baba Harbhajan Singh. Highly recommended place. Nice mountain views, beautiful atmosphere. You feel energetic, washed away all of your stress. Feel proud to be an Indian.
Its definitely a must visit place for everyone who is passing from here. This place is heaven to feel divine presence and may God bless the beautiful soul of the great Baba Harbajan Singh ji. What is to for a soldier to be worshipped as god even after death? Come and see. This temple is situated between the mountains again guarded by our esteemed Indian Army *Salute*, low in oxygen. Nice history to know about Baba Harbhajan Singh.
Look at the largest Shiva statue from here. In snow time, it looks very nice. Very chilled weather. People who have trouble in breathing, may cause a big problem here.
Tribute to the Army. Patriotism and Spirituality at same place. We can spend 10 mins here max to take pictures and know the location.
