In 185km South-West of Mount Everest and 230 km from Kathmandu, it is a venerated site of Hindu and Buddhist pilgrimage. Kirati people also come there to worship there as they believed Paruhang as Mahadev and Sungnima as Parbati goddess.

This temple in such a mysterious location is the most famous natural Halesi-Maratika Cave in between the holy rivers of Dudh Koshi and Sun Kosi under 20m (67ft) below the surface.
