Hanuman Tok


Tagged: , , , , , ,

Today being Sunday, we had Babai for full-time with us. We planned to visit Hanuman Tok. Hanuman Tok is situated approximately 5 km rising from White Hall on a bifurcating road of the Gangtok–Nathula highway. It is 11 km away from Gangtok town. The height of this point is roughly 7,200 ft. It is a temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman. The temple is maintained by the Indian Army.

It is believed by the locals that Lord Hanuman took rest for a moment at this place when he was on his way to Lanka from the Himalayas. He was carrying Sanjeevani herbs to cure Lakshman.

The temple is popularly known as wish fulfilling temple. As the legend says, locals used to worship a stone here for centuries. From the top of this hillock, one can get a wonderful view of hills around.
