Trip Overview

Pharping, a Newari town 19kms south of Kathmandu is famous for religious aspects. The town is the home to many Hindus and Buddhist religious sites and attracts a lot of pilgrims and tourists. Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambhava who spread Buddhism in Tibet, also known as the lotus born god) attained the level of Mahamudra vidyadhara here. Seshnarayan temple, Bajrayogini temple, Gorakhnath temple, Guru Padmasambhava meditation cave, known as the Asur cave and self-arising Ganesh near Asur cave are the major attractions of Panauti. Pharping is also famous for Nepal’s first and Asia’s second Hydropower plant established by Rana Prime minister Juddha Sumsher Rana. 

Towards the south of Pharping, the temple of Blood- lust goddess of the Hindus is located known as Dakhinkali (known to be the incarnation of goddess Parvati, the spouse of Lord Shiva). Thousands of devotees visit the temples, offering the sacrifice of animals like chicken, goats, pigs, pigeons, and buffalos to satisfy the bloodthirst of the goddess. The Dashain festivals of the Hindus witness thousands of animals to sacrifice as the festival is celebrated to honor the victory of goddess Kali over the demons.
