  • 距離老城區約10分鐘車程距離,也可以搭乘公車到達喔。廟在山頂上,可以眺望波卡拉市區,也可以很清楚的看到Sarangkot 和空中的飛行傘。這間廟是波卡拉很有名的女神廟,幸運的話還可以看到有新人來這裡祈福喔!除了女神的主廟之外,另外還有供奉其他印度教神明,例如濕婆神、克里須那、甘尼許等。 
  • Famous holy place for Hindu pilgrimages in Pokhara. Anyone who is travelling to Pokhara should not miss the opportunity to visit this temple.

  • One of the historical tample in Nepal plus we can view beautiful scenario of Pokhara valley.
  • This is one of the famous place for the Hindus people to offer some ritual. If would be great if temple management committee stop to let devotees scarify animals at this temple.
  • All time popular temple in the valley. Evening full of tranquility, festivity full of pilgrimage and days full of bright views of valley on the South-East and the Mountain range on the North.
