Hanuman Tok, Gangtok

Hanuman Tok in Gangtok is a highly reverred and holy temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman, located at an altitude of 7200 ft. 



As per legend, Hanuman while on his way to Lanka fro the Himalayas with the Sanjeevani herb to cure Lakshman, took a moments rest in this palce. In 1950 a political officer named Appaji Pant erected the idol of Lord Hanuman here. 



There is a temple of Sirdi Saibaba here as well just right of Lord Hanuman Temple.
