Muktinath is one of the popular pilgrimage destinations in Nepal, for both Hindu and Buddhist followers. It lies at an altitude of 3710m above sea level, to the north of central Nepal, on the lap of the Annapurna Himalayan range.
Every year thousands of religious pilgrims visit the temple for salvation. Dedicated to Lord Vishnu, one of the famous Hindu gods of protection, Muktinath has its importance. Hindus and Buddhists believe visiting the Pagoda Temple of Muktinath and dipping a bath in 108 water taps will wash away all our sins and get liberation from the circle of rebirth.
The temple Muktinath lies below the highest pass of Nepal, which is Thorong-La Pass 5416m, and above the Kaligandaki Gorge River the deepest in the world, famous for Saligram (Fossil). In between these two popular spots lies the temple of Lord Vishnu.
