How To Reach Mahakaleshwar Temple in Darjeeling

This Temple is located at the top of the observatory hill. How to reach the Mahakaleshwar temple in Darjeeling? The best approach is to get to the Mall Road. On getting to the Chowrasta Mall; the best bet is to enter the road from the right-hand side. That done, you have to keep your eyes fixed on the hill ahead of you.

It is instructive to tell you what to expect around the vicinity of the temple. The path to the place is infested with monkeys who are on the look out for food. If you are carrying a food item; you have to be extra careful or else you risk an attack.

The fact that the monkeys do not know what is in your bag may make them presume it contains food items and you may be at the risk of losing your bag. The watchword here is carefulness. If you are, the monkeys are not harmful.

When you trek within a hundred meters or so, you will find a flight of steps going uphill. This is the path that will lead you to the Temple. As you progress through the steps, it will give way to a narrow winding path.

If you are more used to the plains, then be prepared for a challenge of walking up to the mountain top. If you are a first timer, it will definitely be difficult; but you do not have to shelve the idea of visiting this Temple because there are provisions for you on the way.

Number one, the journey is not all that long. The benefits you will get at the at this sacred place of devotion makes the pains that you pass through on the way up to pale into insignificance.

There are benches provided along the way located at strategic points. You can sit down and relax along the way if you cannot make the entire journey at a stretch.

Be prepared for a 15-minute uphill walk to the mountain top where the temple sits on. Aside from the Monkeys that will want to snatch food from intending devotes along the route; the cruise to this temple is fun. The elements to make it pleasurable are there along the hilly route.
