AGain, similar to Hanuman Tok, this place is also just a temple built for followers of Ganesh Ji. Nothing special about this place, but again a temple. Religious place which is again included in the sight seeing of Gangtok.

Its a Ganesh Temple at a slightly high altitude. If you plan to go to an even higher altitude like Tsongmo Lake, then you can definitely skip it. We skipped Hanuman Tok after visiting it.

It was more than picturesque points, we as a group enjoyed the colorful ethnic dresses and the photo shoot. It was quiet impressing that the lady provided the dress knew that which dress matches with whom. Some of our pretty friends looked like Japanese dolls...Very colorful dresses for minimal rental. Wear the dress and roam around top of the temple... More

Visiting Mr. Ganesh at Ganeshtok Gangtok was a memorable one.. We tried and put on the local attire available here on rent and took snaps. Unfortunately tourists visiting this place often litter around with pet bottles and plastics..

It is a very colorful place. A very good place for photography .View was superb. Rented traditional dress with vibrant colors available here to pose for your camera. As the name of the attraction suggests there is a Ganesh temple situated on the hillock .This is a calm and quite place .

This is a nice temple on the top. The good thing about this place was that just before starting the climb up, there are shops that rent out the local Sikkimese dress & click pictures for you. More importantly, if you have your own camera & want to take pictures yourself, then you can rent the dress for just Rs.30... More
