Significance of Muktinath

Near a height of 3710 meters above sea level in the Mustang area of Nepal, Muktinath Temple also known as Chumig Gyatsa may be seen nestled between two peaks of snow-capped mountains at the Thorong-La mountain pass. One of the well-known trekking paths of the Annapurna Circuit passes through this temple. Muktinath is a respected temple in the mustang area that is important to both Buddhist and Hindu pilgrims. Every year, thousands of pilgrims travel to the Muktinath Temple in the belief that bathing there will atone for lifetime sins. Numerous Buddhists and Hindus travel to the Muktinath Temple to fulfill their religious obligations.

Muktinath Temple has pagoda-style architecture. According to Hindu mythology, this is where Lord Vishnu found freedom from Vrinda’s curse that caused him to become Saligram (Ammonites) and be separated from his bride. One of eight such shrines, including the holy one, is thought to have materialized by itself (the others include Srirangam, Sri Mushnam, Tirupati, Naimisaranyam, Thottadri, Pushkaram, and Badrinath). In the early 19th century, residents and tourists investigated this temple and gave it the name Muktinath (Lord of Liberation). You may observe the Tibetan plains to the north or the snow-covered Annapurna range to the south from Muktinath, both of which are set against an immensely bleak backdrop.

On the south Asian continent, Mukti, which means liberation, is of the utmost significance to all spiritual people. The Sanskrit name Muktinath carries a spiritual undertone and a specific emotional resonance for devout Hindus. Thousands of devotees travel to Muktinath every year in search of the much-desired escape from the cycle of reincarnation and birth. Every Hindu aspires to Mukti-Nirvana or liberation from the cycle of rebirth and death. According to myths, this world is “MAYA” (an delusion), and it is best to leave it as quickly as possible.
