The temple of Muktinath is a pagoda-shaped temple surrounded by 108 water sprouts and 2 holy ponds. While religious beliefs are the major reason for pilgrims to visit Muktinath temple, it is also remarkably known for the diverse geographical spectrums and wonderful settlement from where you can see the astounding Himalayan views.
Taking a bath in the icy-cold holy pond at Muktinath is believed to wipe off all the sins and liberate. A glimpse of Muktinath is believed to bring good fortune to life and salvation of the soul to get rid of the cycle of birth and rebirth. Especially during some festivals, such as Janai Purnima, in some specific days and Tithi, to pay homage to the Lord Muktinath, embarks a lot of people.
