Baba Harbhajan Singh Memorial

Nestled in the high hills and at an elevation of 4,000 mt. or 13,123 ft on Nathu LaJalep La road Baba Harbhajan Singh Memorial has been built in the memory of Harbhajan Singh, a Sepoy in the 23rd Regiment, who died near the Nathu La during Indo – China war in 1962. This temple was built and is maintained by Indian Army. It is reported that Indian soldiers have got favoures by Baba who also guards each one in the inhospitable terrain.

Legend has it that he appeared in a dream a few days after he went missing and expressed the desire that a monument be built in his memory. His fellow soldiers then built a monument that has over the years acquired the status of a pilgrimage. A camp bed is kept for him and his boots are polished and uniform kept ready every night. The sheets are reportedly crumpled every morning and boots muddy by evening. The Major continues to draw a salary and takes his annual leave.
This memorial is just 18 kms away from Tsomgo Lake on the bifurcated road to Nathu La.
