Old Baba Mandir or Adi Baba Mandir is a must visit destination while touring in Old Silk Route. The mandir is dedicated to Baba 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. Indian Army offer Tea / Coffee and Prasad to the visitors while visiting the Baba Harbhajan Singh Mandir.
