Solophok Chardham :


A temple is a place of huge religious sentiments and it is believed that taking your parents to Char Dham for pilgrimage is a matter of huge pride and blessing. Situated in the Solophok hill in South Sikkim, the temple is spread across 7 acres. The highest point of the hill is occupied by 87 feet high Shiva statue, which is a work of art beyond words. This pilgrimage hotspot is Sikkim was inaugurated by the CM Pawan Chamling on 8th November 2011. The temple has further 12 Jyotirlinga replicas and a 16 and ½ feet tall idol of Kirateshwar, a form of Lord Shiva.

The temple sees a lot of tourist from northeast India and other neighbouring states and can be termed as a perfect place to take your ageing parents.

 Kirateshwar Mahadev Mandir:


The Kirateshwar Mahadev Mandir is a major pilgrimage tourist destination of Sikkim. It is located in Legship on the banks of the river Rangit. The temple is connected to the main road through a suspension bridge. There is a myth which makes this place of worship special. The myth dates back to the Mahabharata. According to mythology, Lord Shiva after being pleased by Arjun’s penance and devotion appeared before him in the very spot where the temple lies as Kirateshwar and blessed him with success in the Mahabharat war. The temple celebrates SHIVA RATRI in a grand way and during this, a huge crowd of followers are expected to visit. The myth and the history make it the best place for your ageing parents to visit.

 Rumtek Monastery:


Sikkim is replete with monasteries which is natural given the fact the state is a major centre of Buddhism. The Rumtek Monastery, located 24 km from skim’s capital, is deemed as one of the pivotal pilgrimage centres for people devoted to Tibetan Buddhism. This Monastery is famous for housing several pivotal and historical artefacts including metal statues and gem-studded cenotaphs. The old monastery was set up in 1730 by the 12th Karmapa Lama Changchub Dorje, and post its destruction in a fire the Monastery was rebuilt.

Samdruptse Hill Namchi:


Samdruptse Hill has located just 5 km away from the town of Namchi. The epic hill is also known as ‘wish fulfilling hill’ as it is said here that you can visit the statue and ask for a wish to the Guru Padmasambhava and your wish is likely to be fulfilled by the divine power here. Let us not measure the authenticity of the statement but the giant statue of the Guru Padmasambhava(Guru Rinpoche) is said to have been showering his blessings for almost 1200 years now. The 45 m tall statue is so tall it can definitely be seen from some of the bordering states too. The foundation of the statue which took around seven years was laid by H.H Dalai Lama in the year 1997. The statue is of great religious and cultural importance not only to the Buddhist population but also other religions too who come here with a belief. Definitely one of the pilgrim places in Sikkim to visit and appreciate.

Ganesh Tok Temple:


Located at an altitude of 6500 ft it is a temple in honour of Lord Ganesh the elephant-headed god. The temple is quite close to the capital city of Gangtok and besides prayers, your parents can have a good view of the beautiful city from the circular balcony which offers to be a viewpoint too. On the days when the sky is clear, you can treat your parents with a magnificent view of the Kanchenjunga covered in snow. The temple is quite narrow and at a time the only person can go inside. You are very capable of handling and carrying your problems on your shoulders. So I hope a few stairs that lead to the temple can be conquered by your parents with little help from your side. It is a gift every son/daughter is lucky to give back to their parents.
