Nepal being a country of temples, can find thousands of temples in every footstep which hold their originality and beliefs. Among them, Pathivara, which lies in the eastern part of Nepal, has its own identity and significance.
Located on the hill of the Taplejung district of Nepal, there lies a holy place of the Limbu people, the Pathivara Devi temple. Every year thousands of people from India and Nepal visit the temple with a belief that their wishes and desires would come true after worshipping Pathivara Devi. The holy temple lies at an altitude of 3,794m (12444ft), to the east of Phungling Municipality.
The temple is called Pathivara because the mountains have the shape of a path (container of grains). The story tells of a local shepherd who lost hundreds of sheep while grazing. Then the worried shepherd got a dream of a goddess and urged them to carry out the ritualistic sacrifice of sheep also she urged them to build a memorial in her honor and finally, all lost sheep returned.
