Damodarkund Darshan and Muktinath Tour
Damodar Kunda DarshanWe welcome you to a serene and highly religious Damodar Kund, it lies on the north east of Mustang District and is at the altitude of 5400 meters. Barah Puran has narrated the damodar kund's religions significance. While describing domodar Kund, River Kaligandaki can't be left untouched. River Kaligandaki has its source in Damodar Kund and throughout its flow to south right up to Indian border carries a manifestation of lying lord Vishnu with Damodarkund jeweled as His auspicious Head and with Muktinath as the mouth, Shaligram Chakra as chest Ru Ru Kshetra of Palpa district as the waist, Devaghatam as the Knee and lastly the auspicious feet of lord Vishnu goes to the credit of Gajendra Moksha devadham, Nawal Parasi. Such a beautiful elaboration of the lord, one may find starting from the auspicious lakes of Damodar Kund.
While visiting Damodar Kund you're in the land of Mustang, the hidden kingdom of Himalayas, you will enjoy a very different culture then that of Indian sub continent Aryan and Dravid culture.
Muktinath & Kagbeni
KagbeniMuktinath as said is the provider of Salvation & has a detailed elaboration in our Dharma Shatras. Muktinath is the only shrine where a combination of Hindu and Buddhist priestdom is found. The shrine is a beautiful pagodial signature of mix of indo gangetic and Tibetan cultural. A Shradha at the confluence of Kag khola and river Kaligandagi at Kagbeni and worship after that in the shrine of lord Muktianth is heavenly and boon bestowing. One would be enlightened and thrilled to have the Darshan of Lord Vishnu flanked by the idols of His divine consorts Goddess Lakshmi and Goddess earth on right and left.
The temple is at the altitude of 3667 mand covers a beautiful panoramic Himalayan view.
