Overview


Muktinath temple is located in Muktinath Valley at the foot of the Thorong La mountain pass in Mustang, Nepal. It is situated at an altitude of 3800 m making it one of the highest temples in the world. It is a Vishnu Temple that is revered as holy and sacred by both Hindu and Buddhists and visited by pilgrims from all over the world. It is one of the most sacred temples where both the Hindus and Buddhists with the divine blessings have co-existenced for the past 14 centuries..

 

Hindus consider it to be a '’ Shakti peetha'’ meaning primordial cosmic energy which was formed by the fallen body parts of Sati Devi when Lord Shiva had gone around with her lifeless body mourning her death. It is one of the Char Dham (four shrines) in Nepal. It is also called ‘’Mukti Khshetra’’ meaning ‘’place of liberation’’.  

 

Buddhists call it ''Chumig Gyatsa’’ meaning ‘’Hundred waters’’ and is according to Buddhists it is the place where the goddess of sky dancers ‘’dakinis’’ reside making it one of the tantric places. Tibetan Buddhist tradition also states that Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava) the founder of Tibetan Buddhism, meditated at Muktinath on his way to Tibet. 

 

Wide roads and a beautiful landscape lead you to this ancient temple. As you climb the stairs you will be mesmerized by the beauty of this holy place.

 

The main temple structure is small in the style of a pagoda, with the deities inside. It contains a golden human-size idol of Lord Vishnu called Mukti Narayan made purely of Gold. The temple also has bronze images of Bhoodevi, the goddesses Saraswati and Janaki, Garuda, Lava-Kusa and the Sapta Rishis. Hindu Vaishnavas consider the central shrine to be one of the eight most sacred shrines, known as Svayam Vyakta Kshetras. Tibetan Buddhists believe the idol to be a manifestation of Avalokiteśvara, who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas.


In front of Muktinath Temple, there are 2 Kunda (Water ponds). This is generally used for holy dipping and is believed to hold the power to wash away negative karma and the results of one’s past negative actions.

 

Holy water from the Kali Gandaki River flows out of the mouth of the 108 bulls behind the Temple. Here the devotees take their sacred bath even in the freezing temperature. The holy tank through which the water flows is called Pushkarini waters. The number 108 signifies the 108 padas of the 27 Nakshatras.

 

You will also see prayer flags hoisted with its holy mantras flying in the air, which according to belief the wind transports the message to the God above. The pilgrims offer Prasad to the deity and offer their prayers which are conducted by a Buddhist nun.  

 

Jwala Mai, the Goddess of Fire which is a `miraculous fire', is situated near the entrance gate of the Mebar Lha Gomba, the small monastery dedicated to Padmasambhava. Pilgrims also visit this site after visiting the main shrine. The Hindus believe that this fire was lit as an offering made by Brahma himself, (the creator) as he set water on fire.

 

Muktinath Temples Darshan (visit) will ward off and remove all your sorrows and miseries. 

 

The most ideal period to visit Muktipath Temple is from March to June and from September to November. It Snows in these areas in December & January and June-September is the rainy monsoon month. Those who want to enjoy the beauty of the snow and are the adventurous ones can even visit in December and January.

Activities such as mountain biking, cycling, rock climbing, and horse riding are also popular here. Since the terrains are akin to that of Tibet’s, you also get to experience the culture there which is a perfect blend of Nepalese and Tibetan.
