The Aadinath temple

On top of the hill – in the centre of Chobhar Village – is located a small but very pittoresque Pagoda dedicated to Adinath, whose origins date back to the 15th century. What is so interesting about visiting this site are, first of all, the presence of so many pots and pans which decorate the walls of the Pagoda. Surely this must be unique in Nepal! One of the explanations is that these items were placed there by newly-weds, for good luck sake, as they embark on their new life together! A more plausible explanation is that In Newari culture, the offering of pots and pans is made to please the Gods.

Apart from that, visitors will note with interest the presence of so many Buddhas or Buddhist stupas in this sacred Hindu shrine.
