Ranipauwa - Muktinath - The temple area

Muktinath 3760m asl

 

After this glorious day we visited the temple area of Muktinath near Ranipauwa. It's an ancient sanctuary for Buddhists and Hindus.

The Buddhists worship a flame of natural gas and the Hindus 108 springs coming out of a wall. It's a special place, peaceful and colourful.

For the Hindus it's one of the most important pilgrim's places because they can wash their sins of when they walk under the 108 springs.
