The 87 feet high statue of Lord Shiva in the 108 feet high main temple is the main attraction of the unique pilgrim center of Solophok Chardham. This statue is a statue of Lord Shiva in the sitting posture situated on the Solophok Hill. Apart from this gigantic statue this pious place is also surrounded by the replicas of the twelve Jyotirlingas that offers one single platform to all the Shiva devotees. The common belief is that Lord Shiva is incarnated as Lord Kirateshwar in Indrakeel which is presently known as the Indian state of Sikkim. This is the reason why he is worshipped as Lord Kirateshwar by the local people of Sikkim. A 16 ½ feet statue of Lord Kirateshwar is also built within the complex. The Hindus believe that in order to attain Moksha one needs to perform pilgrimage in the four Dhams. So, replicas of all the four Dhams- Badrinath, Jagannath, Dwarka and Rameshwar are also constructed inside the pilgrim center.

The Solophok Chardham pilgrim center is built on top of the Solophok Hill which lies 5kms from Namchi town. It covers an area of 28.958 Ha of land which is approximately 7 acres of land and is easily accessible through a smooth road.
