Muktinath Temple located in the central part of Nepal Himalaya is a holy site dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The sacred power of Muktinath is eulogized in ancient and puranic mythologies. The spiritual magnetism of Muktinath is associated with Shaligram (a fossil stone, symbolizing Vishnu) miraculous cures, super-natural beings, sacred geography, and difficulty of access. There the devotees experience the gods’ blessing., purity, and inner peace. Therefore, the manifestation power of the place attracted believers and kings to provide special protection and related programs resulting in the development of various monuments, gompas, and powas, etc., and complexity, not only in the sacred site but also in the pilgrimage route leading to it.
The settings, natural scenery, and the staged development along the lengthy route to Muktinath “Mukti Kshetra ”- salvation field make the whole territory a sacred escape. Each stop along the way in itself is a link of greater or lesser importance between earth and heaven, man and god, the profane and the sacred site of Muktinath. Ultimately this converges to the sphere, known as faith escape— a divinely manifested territory where human beings experience the message and inherent meaning of the power of mother earth. This paradox helps to develop complexity in space and to continue the mass of pilgrims and their self-organizing cyclic movement.
