Baba Harbhajan Singh Temple, Nathula Pass, Sikkim

Baba Harbhajan Singh Temple in Sikkim, a border state of India, is erected in the memory of Harbhajan Singh, a Sepoy (soldier) of 23rd Punjab regiment. It is situated near Nathula pass in Sikkim bordering Tibet which is under China's administration. This is a peaceful place and tourists frequent this temple.

It is believed that Harbhajan Singh after he died on duty appeared in the dream of his colleagues and requested to build a monument in his memory. The fellow soldiers then erected this temple which now is one of the most sacred places in the state.

This is a beautiful and well decorated temple from inside where the belongings of Harbhajan singh have been kept. There are various cafés, shops and arts and crafts shops where you get artistic Chinese products.

Visitors often leave a bottle of water which they collect a few days later to take back home blessed by the spirit of that Indian soldier.
