#Temple in Gangtok

Ganesh Tok is located at the altitude of 6500 feet, close to Tashi View point Ganesh Tok lies on the hill adjacent to the television tower of Sikkim. It is one of the most popular Ganesh temples in Sikkim and is 7kms away from the main city. One needs to climb up a staircase to reach the shrine and the viewing area.

Decorated with multicolored prayer patakas hoisted and tied across the roads, the path to Ganesh will make you feel like walking into the rainbow. However, the temple is quite small and can accommodate one person at a time still remains a major crowd puller for all tourists visiting Gangtok. The viewpoint from the circular balcony around the temple and the viewing lounge is mesmerizing. One can get a clear view of Gangtok, rolling hill and the snow capped mountains including Mount Kanchenjunga. The devotees offer praying and plant saplings on the ground near the temple on behalf of those they love.
