Located on the road between Jelepla and Nathula Pass, Baba Mandir is visited by hundreds of people every day. It is believed that the temple has wish fulfilling powers. The legend of Baba goes 35 years back when Sepoy Harbhajan Singh of the 23rd Punjab Regiment went missing. It is said that at the time he was leading a pack of mules from his battalion at Tukla to Deng Dhukla, both remote areas located in East Sikkim.
After he went missing, a manhunt began and the army found his body after three days. It is also believed that he led all the soldiers on his own. The soldiers then reported that Baba started appearing in their dreams and directing them to build a shrine in his name. A samadhi was built in his memory and his believers exclaim that even today Baba visits every night, puts on his uniform and does his rounds. Baba is regarded as a saint who grants boons and guards the lives of soldiers posted along the border.
An annual holiday is celebrated in September in the memory of the saint. People leave their water bottles at the mandir and collect it back on their way back. It is believed by them that the temple will bestow curative properties that helps cure many ailments.
