priests smile at you benignly and the devotees also are very friendly. The presence of small cute devotee children adds a lot of sunshine to it. HAR HAR MAHADEV!!!

temple was good but I was expecting a little more as u will have to climb hundreds of stairs to reach the temple.. u should be aware of monkeys and please don't keep any type of eatables in your hand while going to this mandir, as the monkeys might be snatching the food from u at any point of time...

Located at Darjeeling mall and one has to climb some steps to reach there.The paper flags all around the temple will surely attract anybody.View from the top is good.

On reaching The Mall, cross the local street market and walk up the stairs/ slope to reach the Mahakal Temple. You will be immediately greeted with innumerous colourful (prayer) flags all over the place. The temple bells are free to ring and it sounds good from a distance. You can easily spend an hour or more here trying to discover everything it has to offer. But beware of naughty monkeys in the region.
