The famous Ganesh Tok or Temple is located on a hill in the Gangtok, the capital city of Sikkim. The capital of Sikkim is not only famous for its amazing natural beauty, but also for various prominent pilgrimage destinations. Even though the temple is built in the small area, this is one of the key temples in Gangtok. The path to the temple is decorated with the multicolored flags which are the trademark of this temple. The entrance of the temple is narrow so only one person can enter and get the Darshan of Lord Ganesha at one time. Situated on the hill, the temple offers an amazing overlooking view of the Gangtok city as well as the view of the Khangchendzonga Mountain. The temple dedicated to the Lord Ganesha is the most visited temple in the Gangtok to offer prayers and get the Darshan.

How to Reach:
Ganesh Tok is quite small, and you need to climb a staircase to reach the upper levels where the viewing area is situated. Mid-way of the stairs, you will be required to take your shoes off. The inner sanctum of the temple is so small that the devotees are required to crawl on all fours to reach Lord Ganpati.
