Day 3TRANSFER TO PELLING VIA NAMCHI AND RAVANGLA

Early morning we continue our journey towards Pelling.

 

Namchi. This is the first Shai Baba temple in the whole of Sikkim. It was built by Shirdi Shai Baba Trust of South Sikkim under the patronage of the Government of Sikkim Tourism. It was opened for prayers on 3rd November 2010 by the Chief Minister of Sikkim Dr. Pawan Chamling. The temple is located at the corner of two roads. Although overall it’s a striking complex with garden setting with an awesome architecture with intricate work all around. Upstairs there is a wonderful statue of Shirdi Shai Baba kept on an elevated platform at the end of a huge hall. The hall with its blue decor & hue, and paintings & sculptures of many gods & goddesses around the walls is awe-inspiring. 

 

Char Dham: Char Dham is undoubtedly the most popular and the best tourist attraction in Namchi. It is located on a hilltop and about 5kms from the center of town. This large complex has been conceived to take Sikkim to new heights of pilgrimage & religious tourism. The complex comprises of the main temple of Shiva on which the imposing statue of Shiva has been set up. Additionally, there are replicas of twelve jyotirlingas to offer one platform to all devotees of Shiva, as well as replicas of the four dhams (Badrinath, Jagannath, Dwarka dedicated to Lord Vishnu and Rameshwar dedicated to Lord Shiva).

 

Samdruptse MonasterySamdruptse Monastery is about 7kms from Namchi town and up on Samdruptse hill. Before Char Dham, this used to be the main attraction of Namchi, it is still very popular among tourists though. Samdruptse means ‘Wish-fulfilling Hill’. The locals believe that the hill is a dormant volcano. The Buddhists lamas have been regularly offering prayers so that the volcano does not erupt. It has stayed calm so far. There is a mammoth 45-meter statue of Sikkim’s patron saint Guru Padmasambhava set up on an elevated platform. The face is coated with gold that glitter in the sun. Walk around the platform and you can get magnificent views of the mountains and forests. The entry to the monastery is from the backside. The foundation stone here was laid by Dalai Lama on 22nd October 1997. Subsequently, when the work started, it took over 3 years with many renowned architects, engineers, and over 1,000 laborers who worked hard together to set up the statue and the monastery. The religious aspects of the project were supervised by His Eminence Kyabje Dodrupchen Rinpoche who later consecrated the holy statue.

 

Ravangla: Another lovely place is Buddha Park in Ravangla (aka Ravangla) also known as Tathagata Tsal, 30kms from Namchi town. Spread over 23 acres of area this parkland has a towering sitting statue of Buddha which is 137ft 22inch tall. The face of the statue is coated with 3.5kgs of gold. It is the tallest metal statue of Buddha in the world.

Khangchendzonga and one has to climb up a little to reach at the base of the fall, and feel the striking water shaping the granite rocks underneath.

The ruins of Rabdentse Palace are just a walk away from the Pemayangtse Monastery through the dense forest on the way to Pelling. As one enters the gate, the chestnut trees welcome the visitors by dropping mosses on them and leads to the stone throne comprising of three standing stones known as ‘Namphogang’ where the judges used to pronounce the final judgment. Walking a little further, one will see ‘Taphap Chorten’ which was the entry point of the palace, while the ruins are at the center of the fourth courtyard which offers the mesmerizing view of the southwestern region of Sikkim.
