The most important pilgrimage sites incarnation of Lord Vishnu jalasayana, lying on Ananta Sea, in the cosmic ocean. Five-meter long lord Vishnu is lying inThirteen-meter long tank, as if floating with his legs crossed. His four hands hold the four symbols of Vishnu: the Chakra (Disc), club, and Conch-shell & lotus flower. 

Literally Budhanilkantha means" old blue-throat". Ananta has 11-hooded heads. It has believed that the deity had carved in the seventh to 8th century during the Licchavi period. Buddhanilakandha temple has only allowed to Hindu to go to inside the temple. The main festival of the year is when Lord Vishnu, sleeps on the cosmic ocean during Caturmasya period wakes up on the Haribondhini Ekadashi day in late October or early November. 

Many thousands of people come to Buddhanilkantha temple on this day.Three other images of Lord Vishnu had carved at the same time. One is here at Budhanilkantha has considered the most important and original, one is at Balaju Gardens, and one is at the Naranhity Palace museum in Kathmandu, but cannot be viewed by tourist. The king of Nepal had not allowed seeing the deity at Budhanilkantha, but he can see the other two deities. It has believed that, if the king sees this deity of Vishnu, he will die immediately. 

The deity of Budhanilkantha was lost for a while and had later rediscovered by a farmer. It has believed that the farmers struck the buried deity with his plough and that blood came out from the ground. The morning puja between nine and teen am is interesting.
