Ganesh Tok, Gangtok

In Gangtok close to Tashi View point is Ganesh Tok, a temple of Lord Ganesha. It's located at an altitude of 6,500 ft.



This is a small temple that can be reached by climbing few number of steps.



Opposite to the temple is a small glass panel room from where one can get panoramic view of the entire town of Gangtok, and mount Kanchenjunga if whether is kind on you.



Nearby there is small garden with beautiful flowers.
