    Like Mount Kailash is the home of Lord Shiva, Himalaya has always been the abode of Gods. So, Gorakhnath Hermitage is found at the southern flank of world's eighth highest mountain Mount Manaslu (8163m). The hermitage was later developed into a village and took the shape of the country that eventually became the Gorkha Kingdom, producing fierce fighters legendary Gorkhas. Gurkhas, pronounced by British, meaning the legendary soldiers with a reputation of loyalty and bravery took their name from the same Pilgrimage place of Gorkha in Nepal, carrying the cult of Saint Gorakh, known largely as Baba Gorakhnath. It was from Gorkha that the original Gorkhali army set out in the 18th century. The main attraction is the Gorkha Darbar which is located in a hill top looking over the whole Gorkha. Popular Hindu Pilgrimages situated in Gorkha are Holy Gorakhnath cave and Gorakh Kali temple in the western side of Gorkha Palace. Unification of Nepal, bearing name of Kathmandu Valley, began from Gorkha in the 18th century.

    MANAKAMANA DHAM (Manasa Devi): We visit Manakamana by Swiss/Austrian Cable Car. The temple is located at about 1300 meters at the top of the hill surrounded by small village. The word Manakamana is originated from two words “mana” meaning heart and “kamana” meaning wish. It is believed that this goddess fulfils pilgrimage wishes.

It is believed that pilgrimage to the ancient four dhams of India like Dwarika, Kedar, Rameshwor and Jagannath becomes meaningful only after a final darshan of Pashupatinath and by taking a holy dip in Bagmati River and conducting proper Puja.
