This famous temple lies in the district of Mustang. It is situated 48 km north east of Jomsom at an altitude of about 3749 m. This place is opened throughout the year but especially in Rishitarpani, Ram Nawami and Bijaya Dashami.Its main shrine is a pagoda-shaped temple dedicated to lord Vishnu. According to Hindu Myth Lord Vishnu turned into Shaligram because of Brinda’s Curse. Behind the temple there are 108 waterspouts cast in the shape of cow headed pour holy water. Here lots of pilgrimage takes bath from the ice-cold holy water. The temple is situated on a high mountain range. During the festival of Janai Purnima, Hindu devotees gather here to pay homage to lord Muktinath.
