  • Had a great experience in Ganesh Tok located in Gangtok, Sikkim. A very beautifully decorated temple and well maintained in terms of cleanliness. Would recommend everyone to visit this place atleast once.

  • A good stop on the way to tsomgo lake. Scenic view of the city makes a definite click.

  • A very lovely place to visit, the Ganesha idol is very beautiful and handsome. A quiet place for a prayer and followed by stunning views that would make you spell bound. A must try of the local Sikkim dress that is available for rentals at the foot. The place is also very near to the zoo. Gantok is amazing and this tourist centre is adds to it's cadre

  • Amazing place. You can really feel it being on the top . Cold af . Mesmerising views both in the clear and cloudy weathers . Also , if you go there , dont forget to try out the clothes from one of the stalls at the foot of the temple .
