Shiva Parvati Temple at Muktinath

The Shiva Parvati Mandir with Shiva, the god of generation and destruction, and his consort mountain-goddess Parvati. This temple is the only temple at Muktinath-Chumig Gyatsa which is purely Hindu. It is surrounded by four smaller temples. Clockwise at the front left the temple of Vishnu, the preserver of the universe; behind it the temple of Rama, the seventh incarnation of Vishnu; next to it the temple of Krishna, the eighth reincarnation of Vishnu and finally at the right the temple of Ganesh, son of Shiva and Parvati and the god of knowledge, wisdom & literature.

This is in Nepal
There is a Siva's temple.
The path is difficult.
But if you want Mukti,-
If you want Muktinath,-
The path becomes very easy.

O Lord Siva! O Muktinath!
Thou art the one Brahman
Without a second.
Thou art the destroyer
Of three Tapaas.
I take refuge in Thee.
Thou art the Father and Mother
