Ganesh tok is on the tourist circuit in Gangtok. Nothing special about this place. Very close to the zoological park and might as well stop by. A small temple in an elevated place.

This temple of Lord Ganesh is situated close to the Himalayan Zoological park. The temple is perched on top of a small hillock and as such one needs to climb around 25-30 stairs to reach the temple. The views of Gangtok city from the rear of the temple is decent. The place is a bit commercialized though. Worth a visit.

Did the mistake of going to this place and it was one forgettable experience. Extremely crowded since it is considered to be one of the tourist attractions and is a part of the tourist package. We think we wasted our time visiting this one

a small temple . view is good. If you plan a visit to other parts of sikkim, this place is not worth a visit it can absolutely be a skip.

An excellent place to have a clear view of snowclad Mt Khangchendzonga and its nearby peaks. It has also got a Ganesh Mandir on top. You can pray and seek blessings of Lord Ganesha here. In addition, you can also have Nepali/ Bhutia/ Lepcha traditional dresses on hire for photography. There are also few stalls selling Buddhist artefacts and memorabilia.... More

Nice and well maintained Temple with great view. Adjoining the temple is a very good souvenir shop surprisingly well priced. Must visit on a trip to Gangtok.

It is just another point in the 10 point tour... Nothing special to mention about the temple... But you can pick up souvenirs from the shop there.... And surprisingly I found it to be the cheapest place to pick up souvenirs in Gangtok...

The temple is small and there is not much to do at this place. There are some costume shops at the entrance. Can be covered on way to Tashi view point.

Another random viewpoint plus you have to take off your shoes for a random Ganesh temple poor view. Best idea would be to skip these viewpoints and go to hanuman tok only
