Manakamana Temple, Kurintar

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.

  • The locals will irritate you to the maximum and well the people standing in queue if you are lucky then awesome if not then good luck.
  • Historic place.... One of the most worshipped place in Nepal. Here the wishes comes true.
  • The temple is quite amazing located on the mountain top at the height of 1302m. Quickest way to get there is cable car which takes about 10 mins. Views are breath taking from the temple. But everything is very pricey up there.

  • Nepal’s famous religious place. Goddess of fulfill, Manakamana.
