Pharping, a newari town 19 kms south of Kathmandu is famous for religious aspects. The town is the home to many Hindus and Buddhists religious sites and attracts a lot of pilgrims and tourists. Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambhava who spread Buddhism in Tibet, also known as the lotus born god) attained the level of Mahamudra vidyadhara here. Seshnarayan temple, Bajrayogini temple, Gorakhnath temple , Guru Padmasambhava meditation cave, known as the Asur cave and self arising Ganesh near Asur cave are the major attractions of Panauti. Pharping is also famous for Nepal’s first and Asia’s second Hydro power plant established by Rana Prime minister Juddha Sumsher Rana. 

Towards the south of Pharping, the temple of Blood- lust goddess of the Hindus is located known as Dakhinkali (known to be the incarnation of goddess Parvati, the apouse of Lord Shiva). Thousands of devotees visit the temples, offering sacrifices of animals like chicken, goats, pigs, pigeons and buffalos to satisfy the blood thirst of the goddess. The Dashian festivals of the Hindus witness thousands of animals to sacrifice as the festival is celebrated to honor the victory of goddess Kali over the demons.
