About Dakshinkali Pharping Tour

The Dakshinkali Pharming Day Tour is one of the historical and religious tours. Dakshinkali is a Hindu site, and Pharping is Buddhist. The time starts at 9:00 am from the hotel, and we will take you to Dakshinkali, Pharping, and Shesh Narayan temple, then drop you back at your hotel.

Dakshin Kali:- Meaning of Dakshin is south in the Nepali language, and Kali is one of the Hindu goddesses to whom Hindus offer the blood of animals. Dakshinkali is about 18 km south of Kathmandu. On the way to Dakshinkali, you will pass the historical gorge of the Bagmati River ( Chovar), a legendary lake (Taudaha), and a lovely farming landscape. Dakshinkali is inside the forest between the meeting points of three rivers. Every day vast numbers of Hindu devotees visit this place to worship. GoddessKalii used to kill demons to save the people and the other gods, according to the Hindu myth. There is a most potent cremation place (ghat). Some birds and the offering shops make the site more attractive. The people shell locally growing things in this place.

Pharping:- Pharping comes from two words, Fana and Pinga, meaning hanging snake. This Pharping village has a long Buddhist history. The water covered the Kathmandu valley, and Manjushree chopped the Chovar hill with his magical sword. Then after Padmasambhava (sitting on a lotus) came Chovar. After meditating for a few years in the different caves in Chovar, I went to Tibet and then developed Tibetan Buddhism. So Pharping is a historical Buddhist site. There are several beautiful monasteries, Bajrayogini temple footprints of Gorakhnath, and colorful Tibetan prayer flags. Pear is the favorite fruit of Pharping.On the way to Pharping, you will see a nice view of Kathmandu valley and some snow caps.

Shesh Narayan Temple:- Returning from Dakshinkali and harping, Sheshnarayan is heading to Kathmandu. Shesh is naga (snake god), and Narayan is the name of the Hindu god Bishnu ( god of preserver). It is a Hindu site where you can see the Vishnu temple and others. Every year in Naga Panchami (Hindu snake date), people throw long wood into the lake as a holy snake. In that small lake, there are many colorful fishes. According to the legend killing the fish from this lake is not good.
