The renovation of Narsingh
Gompa and the Central
Temple started last year. A photo series will be made within the
next months and will be published on this website in June 2013.
Muktinath-Chumig Gyatsa is one
of the most important pilgrimage sites of Nepal for both Buddhists and
Hindus. It is a great example to our world of a sacred place shared
in harmony by devotees of two world religions.
The traditional caretakers of the sacred place are the
nuns of the lineage of Lama Wangyal.
Their international support is channeled via the MFI.
For more information, please see our donation
For other nunneries nearby, please see here.
This page includes a link to a very nice movie about Muktinath-Chumig
Gyatsa and the nuns of the lineage of Shangpa Rinpoche.
you visit Muktinath in the eighties or before?
MFI is looking for people who made film or video recordings, slides
or photographs of the pilgrimage site or its pilgrims.
