Changu NarayanChangu Narayan Tour

Located on a magnificiant hilltop commanding a fantastic view of Kathmandu valley, the Changu narayan – the temple of Lord Vishnu—is 6km north of bhaktapur. The temple is full of magnificent art works in metal & wood. In fact, it is one of the finest examples of Nepalese architecture. The first epigraphic evidence of Nepalese history found in the temple premises during the reign of the lichhavi king mandev dati8ng back to 464AD shows that Changu narayan ha already been established as a sacred location in the 3rd century AD. The present structure had probably constructed in the 17th century, though older elements have incorporated during the restorations. The pagoda style temple has several masterpieces of 5th & 12th century Nepalese art.

Some of the important sculptures here as:

  • Vishwo Roop-Lord Vishnu in his all-pervasive universal form vishwo Roop represented in a serpent bed-the symbolic oh the endless water. This sculpture dates back to 8th century AD.
  • Vishnu Vir-kranta-Lord Vishnu in his most powerful form measuring the space by his feet. This stone bas-relief image has dated as 8th century AD.
  • Vishnu mounted in his vehicle Garuda-the mythical man bird.
  • Nr-singha Vishnu in his half-human half lion's form.

The myth behind the conception of the Changu narayan temple signifies the religious significance & importance of the place according to a legend. Lord Vishnu beheaded a Brahmin thinking it to be a demon & only discovered it later that ha had committed a heinous crime. He then wandered on the earth on his mount, the Garuda eventually descending on the hill at changu. 

There ha lived in anonymity, surviving on milk stolen from a cow belonging to a hermit sage Sudharshan. When Sudharshan found out about the stolen milk, he attacked & beheaded Lord Vishnu, which freed Lord Vishnu from his sins. Since that day, the site has been held scared & the temple had revered.
