Muktinath Temple

The Pagoda style Muktinath temple is the symbol of religious symbiosis between Hindu and Buddhist. Hindu believes that lord Bishnu got salvation from the curse of Brinda here. Therefore he is worshipped as Muktinath (lit. the lord of salvation). Hindu devotees take bath under chilled water of 108 waterspouts located behind the temple. It is also believed that the deity was originated from Jumla, far Western Nepal. On the other hand, Buddhist worship Bishnu as Avalokiteshvara (Chingresig). The temple depicts the metal statues of lord Bishnu, goddess Laxmi, Saraswati & Janaki, Garuda, Lava-Kusha and Sapta Rishis.
