Visit a holy place high up in the mountains at Baba Harbhajan Singh Temple, built to honor a 27-year-old soldier who died while posted close to the Sino-Indian border. Singh's death in 1968 has remained the subject of myth and spiritual belief: the official version suggests that he was killed during a skirmish on a mountain pass between Tibet and Sikkim, but others state that he perished in a glacier. Legend has it that he visited one of his colleagues in a dream and asked him to build a shrine here in his memory. The shrine has become a moving tribute and a place of pilgrimage, particularly for service personnel.

Scenic location amidst hills and in the lap of nature. The place looks completely different each season with snow in the winter and abundant greenery during the summers and the rains. To understand the significance of the place, it's important to read about it prior to visiting else, you will be in the dark. There is no entry fee and everything is free of cost. There is a restroom facility, a cafe and a souvenir shop around. Parking space is abundant. You need a permit to visit the place and there is stringent surveillance by defense forces on vehicles that move around. TIP: The road is narrow and rough. Starting early to and from Baba Harbhajan Singh Temple can save a lot of time by avoiding traffic.
Beautiful place to visit surrounded by hills and waterfalls at nearly13k feet. It's very very cold throughout the year so carry proper clothing. If you don't have thick jackets or snow boots you can rent it from local shops.
