Manakamana Temple is located 100 km west of Kathmandu atop a hill and is located a mere 3 hours from Kathmandu.

‘Manakamana’ is a Sanskrit term comprised of two words - Mana and Kamana which when translated in English becomes ‘Wishes of Heart’. This temple is aptly named Manakamana as wishes of many devotees have been materialized simply by worshipping Manakamana Temple. Manakamana Devi is considered to be one of the incarnations of Durga Bhagwati and legend takes Manakamana as the younger sister of Goddess Kali. Manakamana Temple is crowded with devotees throughout the year.  Also, hundreds of chickens and goats are sacrificed each day in Manakamana Temple. The Manakamana area is popular for growing oranges as well, apart from its religious significance.
