This can be a very busy location with chaotic parking but there is a lot interesting going on. The view tower (with views of Gangtok), incorporates a Hindu shrine (where you can be bindified). There is also a reasonable snackery and one can often hire local costumes to 'blend in' (more likely to attract photographs).

A stop and go point for views of Gangtok. The temple there was simple and plain. It is right opposite to the entrance of the Himalayan Zoological Park. One can hire Sikkimese Costumes to take pictures with at the view point.

It is a nice , clean Ganesh temple. From top you would get great view of whole Gangtok and if you are lucky enough (means the sky is clear) you can see Kanchenjunga peak also

Give this a miss and move on to the zoo next to it. The place only has a temple and no view worth mentioning.

The temple is nice and part of local tours.Every SHUBH work is done after requesting Ganesha for his blesings.So it should be part of our tour.

Offered an amazing view of the mountainous Gangtok city. The temple is a small one but situated at a small hill top and we climbed up the stairs to reach towards the amazing view. Enjoyed clicking family pictures too.
