Hanuman Tok: A little further from Ganesh Tok (5 km) is a temple of Lord Hanuman. Spread across a large area, the temple is the most beautiful Hanuman Temple have ever seen. It is located at an altitude of 7200 ft. The locals believe that Lord Hanuman rested in this place for a while when he was returning to Lanka from the Himalayas (carry Sanjeevani Booti). All along the way to the main temple, you can hear the chanting of prayers or the Bhajans playing on the speakers. The atmosphere is something to look forward to. The entry is free yet a parking fee of INR 30 has to be paid. There are toilets at the rear end of the parking lot.Request: Please help keep the area clean.
Hanuman TokHanuman temple maintained by Indian Army. The place was cold and foggy, Kanchenjunga Range can be viewed but there was too much fog we couldn't got that chance.You have to climb stairs to reach Hanuman Tok temple but it was a good temple.
After having my lunch I headed to Hanuman Tok. In trip adviser a guy has written about Hanuman Tok that 'If you have not visited Hanuman Tok , your trip to Gangtok is mere incomplete.' His statement made me to keep this place a must see in my list. It was well out of city on a mountain top. The road was typical zig-zag way and not many visitors make it there. On reaching there I realized, this is the place I was in search of. Absolute silence, chill breeze and lush greenery. The temple is maintained by Indian Army.
