To the south of Kathmandu at about 22 km, the very famous Dakshinkali temple is located which is 1 km away from a small and beautiful village (Pharping). It is one of the major temples of Nepal dedicated to Goddess Kali who is the most bloodthirsty incarnation of Goddess Parvati.
The dakshinkali temple is a part of Dakshinkali Municipality (Kathmandu district, the Bagmati zone of Nepal) which covers a land of 42.6 sq. Kms. With a population of 24,297 according to the population census of 2011.
The dakshinkali temple is one of the most famous temples in Nepal. Many rituals are carried out in this temple, many animals are sacrificed while carrying out different poojas and rituals in this temple.
Since the temple is dedicated to one of the most blood thirsty Goddess, Kali, there is no doubt that the animals are sacrificed during the poojas and rituals, especially during the biggest festival of Nepal, Dashain to worship the Goddess. People from different parts of the country visit to this temple to worship the Goddess Kali as it is believed that the Goddess kali can make their wishes come true.
The temple is often crowded with people and devotees who come to worship, especially on Saturdays and Tuesdays which are the special days in a week to carry out different rituals and many animals are sacrificed during these two days. The temple is very much famous among the Hindu devotees of Nepal.
Although sacrificing animals is considered to be one of the rituals to worship Goddess kali, some devotees still argue about the ritual as it does not satisfy the Goddess Kali. Some believe that the ritual of sacrificing animals is believed to have been regulated through different myths and superstitious culture.
Besides that, At the outskirts of the temple, we can find many local vendors who are selling different pooja items, foods, and much traditional equipments as well as other stuff. You can find the shops at the both sides of the road after taking the exit from the temple.
Apart from the cultural and religious values and activities, the Dakshinkali temple is located along the river and surrounded by green trees more like a small forest.
Walking down the narrow roads with the green tress at both sides is very much appalling. The views and sense from up the hill, the greenery, beautiful climate and the local culture and tradition just makes it a perfect spot for tourists to visit. A small hiking from pharping to Dakshinkali is one of the favorable hikes for tourists.
Dakshinkali temple is located at one of the beautiful places which are about 22 km south of Kathmandu. The temple is always crowded with the people and many Hindu devotees who come to worship Goddess Kali as it is one of the main temples dedicated to the bloodthirsty incarnation of Parvati, Goddess Kali.
