There is a historical importance of Machhindranath. Machhindranath is the god of rain. There are two Machhindranath temples in the Kathmandu valley. The first one is red Machhindranath. The pagoda of red Machhindranath built in 1408 AD and situated in Tabahal for six months and deity is taken to other shrine in Bungamati of Patan. Another one is Seto Machhindranath, situated at Machhindra Bahal between Ason and Indrachowk. It is a pagoda of considerable artistic beauty; the deity is also called Janmadyo.
Despite its height, the Temple of the Thousand Buddhas, or Mahabouddha Temple, is not immediately visible as other buildings tightly surround it. This shikhara-style temple is modeled after the original Mahabouddha Temple at Bodhgaya in India, where the Buddha gained enlightenment. At Bagan in Myanmar (formerly Burma), there's another Mahabouddha Temple, which is also a copy of the Bodhgaya original.
The temple takes its name from the terra-cotta tiles with which it is covered, each bearing an image of the Buddha. The temple is believed to have originally been built in 1585 although some sources suggest an earlier date.
Bindhyabasini Temple is also one of the most popular and well known temples in Pokhara. It is situated in the laps of Machhapuchre and Annapurna ranges. This temple lies in the north of Pokhara .This temple is 3000 ft above from the sea level. You can get a fabulous view of Pokhara city and the Himalayas from this temple. The fragrance of the scented “Dhup” and refreshing air can keep anyone spellbound.
This temple originated when the Goddess “Bhawani “told king khadag Bum Malla to establish her statue in Bindhyachal hill. This temple was established in B.S 1845 since then this goddess is worshipped daily. Even the tourists visits at least once there. This temple is one of the most important holy places for the Hindu people. The government has even printed its stamp with the picture of the temple in the year 1988.
