Mangal Dham Temple




Mangal Dham Temple is in the picturesque hill town of Kalimpong in Darjeeling, West Bengal. Built in 1993 by the Hindu sect Shri Krishna Pranami, in memory of late Guru Sri 108 Mangaldasji, this temple complex sports exquisite architecture and a landscaped garden.

Sprawling over two acres of wooded land close to the Sikkim border, Mangal Dham is dedicated to Lord Krishna. The prayer hall with the idols of Raj Shyamji, Prannath and Mangaldasji, is on the top floor. This floor also depicts in pictures various scenes from the lives of Krishna and the patron saints of the temple. The final resting place of Mangaldasji is on the ground floor. Numerous pilgrims visit this shrine every year.
