Pashupatinath-Muktinath Pligrimes Tour

Pashupatinath temple is situated on the banks of the holy River bagmati and is the most revered Hindu temple in Nepal. The main temple complex is open only to the Hindus; non-Hindus can observe the temple premises and activities from the terraces across the Bagmati River to the east. It is one of the four most important religious sites in Asia for Shiva devotees. Pashupatinath, dedicated to Shiva the Destroyer, is the holiest Hindu Pilgrimage destination in Nepal. Although the Pashupatinath Temple was only built in the fifty century and later renovated by Malla kings, the holy site is said to have existed from the beginning of the millennium.

A golden-plated roof, four silver doors and wood carvings of the finest quality decorate the pagoda temple of Pashupatinath. Temples dedicated to several other Hindu and Buddhist deities surround the temple of Pashupatinath. Nearby is the temple of Guheshwori dedicated to Shiva’s consort Sati Devi. Behind the temple is the River bagmati. On the banks of Bagmati are raised platforms used as cremation sites for Hindus. Some important monuments to see in this area are: Gorakhnath, Rajrajeswari, Pancha-Dewal, Bankali, Arya-Ghat, Birupakchhya.

Muktinath is a sacred place both for Hindus and Buddhists located in Muktinath Valley at an altitude of 3,800 meters. The Hindus call the sacred place Mukti Kshetra, which literally means the “place of salvation”. It is also one of the 51 Sakthi peetams. The Buddhists call it Chumig Gyatsa, which in Tibetan means ‘Hundred Waters’. For Tibetan Buddhists Muktinath-Chumig Gyatsa is a very important place of Dakinis, goddesses known as Sky Dancers and one of the 24 Tantric places. They understand the murti to be a manifestation of Avalokitesvara.

As a mark of reverence and tradition, leather items that include shoes, belts and cameras are forbidden within the temple complex and must be left outside. Photography is strictly prohibited inside the temple premises.
