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.
