A religious day around Dolakha… #Mahangkali #Bhimsen #Kalinchwok

Dolakha is one of the seventy-five districts of Nepal. The district, with Charikot as its district headquarters, is a district with a strong religious affiliation. It is popularly known amongst most Nepalese for the temple of Dolakha Bhimeshwar and Kalinchowck. The famous Bhimeshwar temple is located in Dolakha Bazar. The main statue of this temple is god Bhim. He was the second prince of ‘Panch Pandav’ and notably worshiped by the traders or merchandisers as their will god. The temple constitutes the idol of Bhimsen, which is triangular in shape and made of rough stone. Most people regard this idol as Bhimsen but it has three reincarnations: first as Bhimsen himself, second as Goddess Bhagawati, who is worshipped by sacrificing animals as demon/devil and third as: God Shiva who is never offered sacrifices.

In the north part of the Charikot, there lies Kalinchowck temple at an altitude of 3842 meter. Goddess Kalinchowck is highly noted as a wishful filling goddess throughout the country. It is a famous pilgrimage site for Hindus. The fascinating Kalinchowck hill also offers a gorgeous view of the Himalayan range, enchanting hundred green hills and beautiful settlements.

Kalinchowk Bhagwati Temple is a Hindu shrine. It is a little known and rarely visited tourist destination situated at the altitude of ~3842m, which is the highest around the vicinity. From this place you can get a wonderful panoramic view of Gauri Shanker mountain range. But due to the clouds, I missed the beauty :(.

All the Hindu temples have bell at the entrance or inside the temple and you usually ring it while doing pooja. It is made of various metals including cadmium, lead, copper, zinc, nickel, chromium and manganese. All Evil spirits go out of the temple when they hear the ringing of temple bell. Temple bell is made to produce such a distinct sound that it can create unity of your left and right brain. The moment you ring that bell, bell produces sharp but lasting sound which lasts for minimum of seven seconds in echo mode & good enough to touch your seven healing centres or chakras in your body. The moment bell sound happens your brain is emptied of all thoughts.

The trishula symbolism is polyvalent and rich. The trishula is wielded by the Hindu God Shiva and is said to have been used to sever the original head of Ganesha. Durga also holds trishula, as one of her many weapons.
