Muktinath Overview

Located at an altitude of 3,710m (12,172ft) at the foot of Thorong La Pass, Muktinath is highly venerated pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists.


Hindus call it the Mukti Kshetra, which literally means “the place of salvation” and is considered as one of oldest temple of lord Vishnu. This revered site is believed to be one of the eight temples of the God Vishnu and the Vaishnava Tradition in Nepal, the other seven being Srirangam, Srimushnam, Tirupati, Naimisharanya, Totadri, Pushkar and Badrinath. It is also one of 108 Divya Desam and 51 Shakti Goddess Sites.

Muktinath is small temple which houses human-sized golden statue of Vishnu as Shri Mukti Narayan. Moreover, the temple is decorated with bronze image of Bhoodevi (the Earth-goddess form of Lakshmi), the goddess Sarswati and Janaki (Sita), Garuda (the mount of Vishnu), Lava-Kusa (the sons of Rama and Sita) and the Sapta Rishis (seven Sages created by Brahma). The presence of old Buddhist monk makes it equally revered for Buddhist nuns.

Behind the temple is semi-circular wall fitted with 108 stone faucets. The freezing water from Kali-Gandaki River has been diverted to flow through the tap. Hardly few pilgrims manage to bath on whole 108 taps.

The number 108 carries great importance in Eastern Philosophy. There are 12 Zodiac or Rashi and 9 Planets or Graha, giving a total combination of 108. Moreover, there are 27 Nakshatras which each are divided into 4 quarters, or Padas, again giving the total combination of 108.

Tibetan Buddhist has it that Padmasmbhava, the founder of Tibetan Buddhism, had meditated here on his way to Tibet. They call it Chumming Gyatsa meaning “Hundred Waters”. The monastery dedicated to Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambhava) and housing a statue of Buddhist deity Chenrezig (Avolokitesvara), is known for continuous burning natural gas fire, which Hindus worship as Jwala Mai, the Goddess of Fire.
