About Mahakaleshwar Temple in Darjeeling

This is not the only temple in Darjeeling, but the Mahakaleshwar temple in Darjeeling is one of the most revered of all the temples around. This temple is revered by both the Hindus and the Buddhists. It is a place to be to get the best of devotion. It has a long history behind it and has increasingly grown in popularity over the years.

If one has not been here once in a lifetime, then your experience in tourism can never complete. It is a place for real time devotion where every second spent in this temple is worth your time and money.

It is important to tell you that there is a complex of some sort while at this temple. Located close by is the Hanuman Temple, which is erected next to it. The devotees of both religions, however, worship without hindering each other.

The presence of hundreds of Buddhists flags around adds colour to the atmosphere here. The co-existence of two different kinds of faith is hard to come by. It is, therefore, an experience as one gets to see how things really work.

When one enters the temple, one will hear the Hindu Priests chanting prayers as well as well as Buddhist monks reading out their holy scripts. There is a beautiful harmony between both religions with many bells hung on the walls.

The devotees walk barefoot around the temple three times and they ring the bells as they walk along. The Buddhist believe that the many flags flying around the temple make their prayers connect directly to heaven. With a change in the colours of the flags due to the effects of the weather; Buddhists believe that it signifies that the sins of devotees are being washed away.

One’s visit to this temple is not complete if one did not visit the Makahal cave. It is outside the temple complex, but rather very close to the temple. A visit to this cave is an experience that can last a lifetime. This is a place where one can have deep, sober reflection on other issues of life aside spirituality.

It is a beautiful side attraction and a great place for religious buffs and tourists who choose to visit this religious enclave.

If you want a place where you can make a request to the God; if you believe in the powers of prayers and serious about getting answers, in an enabling environment, then you must visit this place in question. One’s expectations will be met.

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      This was my first trip with Travel Triangle and I am glad that I choose Zippi Trip for my travel arrangements. Sanjeev Sharma was quite proactive in all his communications and he maintained complete transparency while booking hotels and cab. Vouchers were delivered as soon as payment was done. Milan - our cab driver for Sikkim part of the tour ensured our safety at high altitudes and was jovial. I will definitely recommend Zippi Trip to all of my friends! Keep up the good work!

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      Sikkim- truly paradise on heaven. Our trip was awesome and we all enjoyed thoroughly. We were able to cover most of the important places during our trip. Thanks to trips to nature. Especially raj for arranging the itinerary, shantanu for coordinating our trip. Loads of love from us. Our main objective was to visit north sikkim, gurudongmar lake and zero point. Unfortunately lachrn roaf was closed due to land slide, so we couldn't visit gurudongmar. But tripstonature team (shantanu) made immediate changes in our itinerary and included zuluk. Though it was a good location, due to heavy rain and fog we couldn't see anything in zuluk and nathang valley. Rest all were amazing places and we were lucky enough to see all the spots like river rafting, budda park, nathulla pass, tsong lakr, baba mandir, waterfalls, zero point, yumthang valley etc. Still i regret for not visiting gurudongmar lake, hopefully we will make one more trip to north sikkim to cover this regret. Hotels were not that satisfactory, gangtok stay was good, lachung and aritar was ok ok. Regarding extra payments to additional places like nathula(4000), zero point(4000), nathang valley(2500) could have included in the package.rest all were fine in the trip. Thanks team for providing us this wonderful experience and keep up this spirit. All the drivers provided to us were exceptionally good and friendly.we had very good interaction with them. We were fortunate to experience snow in zero point. Thanx to our driver (milan) for taking extra efforts to make that possible for us. Arny had closed that road due to some vips visiting but we waited for almost 1 hr and driver shown patience for that.

      Deepak was our point of contact during the trip and he is very responsive at any times. We booked only taxi for our trip and he provided me the best. Also he upgraded the vehicle on the first day of my trip. He did follow ups every day for two times atleast. I would recommend this travels based on my experience. Also Nisha is the person who took care of payments and point of contact before the trip. She was very good at her work. Thanks again.
