A religious place:

It is the most sacred place for people to believe that all the sins they have committed will go away if they visit the temple once in their lifetime. For Buddhists, it is sacred as the Statue in the temple is the manifestation of Avalokitesvara.


There are 2 ponds in front of the temple named Laxmi Saraswati Kunda, also named Mukti Kunda. People believe that all the sins will go away with the dip in the pond.

Mukti Dhara:

There is 108 waterspouts (Dhara) name “Muktidhara” beside the temple. The 108 faucets in the cast in the shape of bulls’ heads, pour fourth-sacred water. Pilgrims who visit the temple take a holy bath in each of these spouts. But as the water is too cold, it requires burning desire and courage to take a holy bath there. Similarly, Hindu devotees take bath under chilled water of 108 waterspouts “Muktidhara” believing that it brings them salvation. Also, it is believed that the deity was originated from Jumla, a far western part of Nepal. In Janai Purnima, Buddhist’s Yar tang Mala celebrates here.
