Great view, peaceful and great surroundings, u can capture some great pics..the temple is beautiful and will give you peace of mind. We have hired a taxi from mall road which covered this place along with other places like tea Garden, rock garden, Himalayan zoo.. This is one of the best places in Darjeeling..
