Char Dham

Top choice hindu monument in Namchi

This unmissable feast of colour is a remarkable Hindu religious theme park crowning Solophuk hilltop, 5km southwest of Namchi. It brings together replicas of great Indian pilgrimage sites, including Rameshwarm, Dwarka and Jagarnath, beneath a towering 33m Shiva statue. Whether you find it moving or kitschy, the views and photo opportunities are spectacular.

Be prepared to walk a fair distance barefooted. A taxi here from Namchi, with a one-hour wait, costs ₹330 return.
