Mukthinath Temple is the symbol of the religious symbiosis between both Hindus and Buddhists. The Hindus believes that Lord Vishnu got salvation from the curse of Brinda (wife of Jalandhar) here. Therefore, he is worshiped as Muktinath (Lord of salvation). The holy shrine, which is said to have arisen on its own, is one of eight such shrines (the others include Srirangam, Sri Mushnam, Tirupati, Naimisaranyam, Thottadri, Pushkaram, and Badrinath). This Pagoda Style Muktinath Temple is also one of 108 Vaishnava shrines. Here in the early 19th century the Hindus consecrated a Vishnu temple and named is Muktinath - Lord of Liberation.There are 108 waterspouts in the backyard of this temple called as Muktidhara where frozen water is continuously flowing from the bullhead and two Kunda (ponds in front of the temple). Taking bath in these 108 waterspouts and two Kunda (ponds) believes to bring salvation.
Pashupatinath Temple is the oldest Hindu temple in Kathmandu. It is located on both banks of Bagmati River on the eastern outskirts of Kathmandu. This is most important temple dedicated to God Shiva. Pashupatinath temple has four entrance gates of which the primary one is located on the western side. On one occasion, Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati came to Earth in the form of deer. They landed in Nepal’s forest regions and were fascinated by the glory of the land. When they arrived at the banks of the Bagmati River, they decided to stay for eternity. When the other gods and goddesses decided to bring them to their cosmic work, Lord Shiva refused to come. Gods had no other choice than to use force to bring them back. Lord Shiva, disguised as a deer, lost one of his antlers during this terrible fight.
