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
The place is not worth a penny if the weather is bad. It was raining all the way to temple from Gangtok taxi stand when I went there so I could neither enjoy the route nor the temple due to heavy fog. Moreover, the landslides could traffic jam for long. That said, if it is sunny then the route itself is worth every penny. Scenic beauty is astounding. Temple still would suck though. Make sure to visit the place before monsoon hits Sikkim.
What is to for a soldier to be worshipped as god even after death? Come and see. The drive to the place itself a "look here , look there- awestruck scenery "even during monsoon. I wonder how it would be in seasons. There is a waterfall and a lord Shiva statue nearby. A walk from baba mandir to Lord Shiva statue will leave you to experience how it would be to live at 14200 feet. Its a once in a lifetime must see location.
Excellent at 15000 ft..It's a mind blowing experience. It's not a temple of god. Actually it's a memorial of Harbhajan Singh,who was a Shahid of Indian army. If you come in winter you will see it frozen. The place is very beautiful with awesome natural beauty of high heels. But you will definitely going to have breathing problem for high altitude and lack of oxygen. So be careful and be prepare for it.
The scene around the place is far better than the place itself. Enjoy tasty nuts and dry fruits given inside the temple. Lucky if you experience snowfall.
It has more of emotional value. Army has maintained this place very well. On the down side, visit this place only if you are really interested to see the place and believe in the story. If you are visiting as a tourist attraction, then don't expect much.
