Perched at the highest altitude of the earth is the holiest of holy, Muktinath Temple, standing gloriously as a symbol of religious significance for both Buddhism and Hinduism. It is located in Muktinath Valley in Mustang, Nepal. This holy shrine is close to the rural Ranipauwa, which is often mistaken to be Muktinath.
The temple's name refers to "Mukti", meaning "nirvana, or salvation", and "nath", which signifies "master, or God". Among the Hindus, Muktinath temple is also referred to as the "Mukti Kshetra", which translates to "the place where one receives moksha or liberation".
Of the one hundred and eight sacred Shri Vaishnava temples, Muktinath Temple holds the 106th rank among the Divya Desam, or 'premium temples'. This holy sanctuary is one of the most important pilgrimage sites for both Hindu and Buddhist devotees and is often taken to be an epitome of emotional as well as spiritual cleansing. In addition to religious fulfilment, Muktinath temple attracts people from all over the world for its sheer beauty and tranquillity. Even though this place receives tourists as well as locals throughout the year, the crowd of devotees is huge during festivals like Vijayadashami, Ram Navami, and Rishi Tarpani.
