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.

  • This is the most beautiful temple of Nepal. I have vistied twice here. We should have to go there from cable cars.It is in very high altitude. This temple is very nice.
  • I have visited once time it’s the perfect place for Hinduism. The manakamana temple is situated in the top of the mountain. We can go their by the cable car . One of the best place for visiting and worshiping.
  • A very beautiful place of worship. To reach the hill top, cable car is used. Its an very exiting journey of more than 4000 ft from cable car station for 10 to 15 minutes . Cable car station has parking lot facilities and other amenities. Ticket costs 800 nepali currency.
  • This is on the way from Pokhara to Kathmandu , the temple is located high up in the mountains and you can take cable car to the place. The cable car journey takes around 15 min and is a very delightful journey as you can enjoy the scenic beauty from above. The temple place is filled with many small shops .
  • First is the ropeway. Great experience. The temple is on the top of the hill. Very old wooden structure with lots of curves. A must visit place at Nepal.
