Travel to Nepal
The area lies on the western ridge of Kathmandu, is situated in a very beautiful location. The temple of goddess Jalamukhi is the main attraction of the area. Everyday many devotees visit the temple and offer worship and offerings to the goddess. The tinkling of bells and the singing of hymns by the devotees make the environment spiritual. The temple takes festive looks during Bada Dashain, Fagu Poornima and Panchami.

The myth behind the construction of the Jalamukhi temple is very interesting. It is said that the statue of the goddess was found at a well near Sunkhani village. On the same night, the goddess instructed some of the villagers on their dream that she wished to be seated at a high place. So obeying the mother goddess’ wish, the villagers constructed the temple at a high place and thus established the statue of the goddess there.

The local people have great faith on Goddess Jalamukhi. Local villagers believe that all disasters and calamities would ease away once group worship of mother goddess is performed by all villagers. Devotees also sacrifice goat, buffalo and cocks at the temple. It is believed that the goddess fulfills the wishes of the devotees once sacrifices are made. Similarly, the local people to conduct various social and religious activities like marriage and other religious functions also use the temple premise. Besides, the Jalamukhi temple, historical Gorkha palace, temples of Gorkha Kalika and the Gorakhnath are also the famous religious sites of this area.

Since the area is located at a gorgeous locality, the area offers magnificent views of the towering peaks. The view of Manaslu, Langtang, Ganesh Himal, Larkye Himal, Lamjung Himal and other mountains of the Annapurna range can be seen from this area. Likewise, the view of the raging Budhi Gandaki River, the wide Salyantar valley and the twin Ganga Jamuna fall help one get refreshed. On the way one can enjoy the beauty of nature, the raging rivers, dense forests, chirping of birds and encounter with wild life.
