Peaceful and calm environment with rhythmic chimes
Oct. 2021 • Couples
Pros:
1. Nice and well maintained
2. Very clean
3. Beautiful atmosphere early morning with rhythmic chimes.
4. Priest take care of the puja for sufficient time.

Cons:
1. Slight challenge for elderly as one has to do a steep climb for 5 mins though a very short distance. Inclination around 40 degrees, but the road are concrete and paved.

Note:
Those who plan to offer puja, can collect the items for Rs 10/20 from the shop once you climb the road and reach the landing at the entrance.

Its a narrow street with a small market leading you to the mandir. Do try the street chai at chowrasta , specially the one with pepper

Must visit
Mar. 2021
One of the best places I have ever been. I would strongly recommend to visit Mahakal temple whenever you visit Darjeeling Mall. Its a bit steep but I can definitely promise you that it would be worth visiting the temple.

A serene place of spirituality
Nov. 2020
a quiet place hosting the abode for the mahakal shiva and shakti. One can feel divinity spending some time here, unlike the chaos in other holy places. enjoyed the view and the riot of colors here in the bright sunny weather with cool mountain breeze... will always cherish the memories. (Visitors tip: accessible car route is from the back side, passing the gorkha hill council, a far lesser walk than the approach through the mall road)

Riot of colours
Dec. 2019 • Family
We visited in December 2019. The menace of monkeys have lessened. The road leading from the mall is quite steep and a long walk. There are uncountable number of prayer flags around the temple and one can get a nice view of the lower ground through the thick canopy of these flags and trees. There's also a place near the temple door to keep shoes and slippers.

Up a big hill
Jan. 2020 • Friends
The temple is a mix of Hindu and Buddhist worship. The Hindu temple is surrounded by prayer flags. It's a peaceful place with a calm atmosphere. There are monkeys around., be mindful. Worth the walk up the hill.
