Located on MG Marg in Gangtok, Thakurbari Temple is the most popular and oldest temple in the city. Built in 1935 by Sir Thutop Namgyal, the former Maharaja of Sikkim, the temple is dedicated to almost all Hindu gods and goddesses and has emerged as an important centre of convergence for the Hindu community of Gangtok. In 2011, the temple complex was further upgraded to include multi-purpose hall and library.
