With reference to the description written in Himvatakhanda, Bhaleshwor Mahadev appeared at the spot where Satidevi’s ‘Bhala’ or the forehead fell off from her dead body. It believes that Satidevi, Shiva’s consort, gave up her life by jumping in a fire pyre at her father Daksha Prajapati’s yagna (sacred fire ritual). After Daksha insulted her husband Shiva in front of scores of gods and goddesses invited at the religious ceremony. An enraged Shiva then carried her dead body on his back and walked across the world. Like a madman for a long span of time, without taking note of Satidevi’s decaying body. Different ‘shakti-centres’ were established at sites where different parts of Satidevi’s body fell in course of Lord Shiva’s mourning.
Therefore, A temple was erect at the same site where Bhaleshwor Mahadev appeared.

It is believed that the people who come here to worship Bhaleshwor get their wishes fulfilled and that they will find abode in the Shivaloka or Lord Shiva’s world in their afterlife. Chandragiri hills carry historical significance. It was from these hills that King Prithvi Narayan Shah caught the first glimpse of a much scenic and prosperous Kathmandu valley, which in fact installed in the king’s mind an idea of annexing the valley into his kingdom. According to folklore, Prithvi Narayan Shah is believed to have amassed spiritual powers for the unification process after undergoing rigorous ‘sadhana’ or meditation at these very hills. The Gorkhali King disguised himself while ascending the hills in order to avoid being recognized by the Malla Kings of Kathmandu Valley. Here you will see the historical temple of Bhaleshwor Mahadev with the spectacular view of Himalayas ranges and Kathmandu Valley. Enjoy the day with the historical background about the goddess and late King Prithvi Narayan Shah facts during the unification of Three State Kasthamandav(Kathmandu), Patan(Lalitpur) and Bhaktapur.
