Manakamana Temple, Kurintar

4.4
#7 of 20 in Things to do in Narayani Zone
A modern cable car takes you to Manakamana Temple, a 17th century pagoda-style sanctuary dedicated to one of Parvati's incarnations-- Bhagwati. After an exciting ride up with stunning views of the mountains and green valley, admire the red and black colored and lavishly decorated temple standing 1,302 m (4,270 ft) above sea level. Feel the holy ambiance and enter the small dark chamber displaying ancient ornaments covered in dust and ashes. Many pilgrims come to worship here and often sacrifice animals-- infact there is a cable carriage for animals just for this purpose. Absorb the breathtaking views of the Manaslu, Himalchuli, and Annapurna mountains to the north, and grab some souvenirs and taste local food from the nearby street vendors.

    Its a great historical and religious place, people used to visit on foot before the cable car. Manakamana in the name of Goddess and believed that your good wishes are made true by the Goddess. Enjoy the chilly weather there. You can find hotels as well.

    Starts with magnificent view of trishuli river while crossing by cable car. Manakamana temple is old hindu temple. Earthquake of 2015 greatly damaged the structure. It is currently being renovated.
