Hindus and Buddhists alike visit Muktinath-Chumig Gyatsa since hundreds
The building of the current main temple is initated by Queen Subarna
Prabha, the second wife of Shah Rana Bahadur (1775-1806), King of
Nepal, after she had a dream. In 1815 AD - the year of the ending
of the Anglo-Nepal war - the temple at Muktinath was built, as can
be read on a bronze plaquette in the temple.
Later a purely Hindu temple was added near by as well, the Shiva-Parvati
The temple is built in the typical pagoda style of a Hindu temple
in Kathmandu Valley and is dedicated to the Lord of Salvation (to
Mukti Nath), Lord
Vishnu, or Chenrezig
as the Buddhists call him (or Avalokitesvara).
Currently the temple is in bad shape. May 3th 2012 is the start of
the renovation of the temple which will take about 5 months.
