Halesi Mahadev Temple
Departs: Kathmandu - TIA Airport
Duration: 2 hours
Halesi Mahadev Temple is a venerated pilgrimage site for Hindus, Buddhists, and Kiratas. Situated in the Khotang district of Nepal, Halesi is a small, but a growing village, which is a religious as well as touristic place. Believed to have been in existence for 6,000 years, two holy rivers: Dudh Koshi and Sun Koshi flows through the temple. Halesi Mahadev is a two feet tall Shiva Linga that enshrines inside the big dense cave. There is a narrow passage between the two pillars that stand close to each other on the north of the Shiva Linga. There is an old belief that sinners cannot pass through this passage. However, it is believed that confessions of the sins committed would enable access through. Countless devotees visit the temple to worship the symbol of Lord Shiva with the belief that Halesi Mahadev blesses the poor with prosperity and the ignorant with knowledge and wisdom.
