Halesi Mahadev is a Hindu, Buddhist, and Kirant famous destination. It’s located 215 kilometers east of Kathmandu Valley. Within the stunning caves, the Halesi Temple is situated at the peak of a small hill. There are also a number of smaller, magnificent caves. The picture of the Lord inside the cave is meaningful, and it adds to the tour’s charm.
It is also a source of prestige for the locals, as it is as well-known as other temples such as Kathmandu’s Pashupatinath Temple and Kapilvastu’s Lumbini. It is recognized around the world as a natural cave that is located in the 4th remote hilly area and is thought to have existed for over 6000 years.
The ancient cave of Lord Haleshi Mahadev is located in Nepal’s Khotang District. About 6000 years ago, Lord Shiva is said to have used this cave to defend himself and hide from the demon Bhasmasur. This temple and Halesi Mahadev is revered as the great god also of gods and goddesses (Devadidev) by Hindus, the father of the Kirat religion is considered to have originated at this location by Kirat people, and Buddhists venerate Halesi as one of their six major tourist spots
It is said that temples of the Shaiva faith (which has evolved since the beginning of time), Buddhists, and other ascetics have attained heaven when meditating at Halesi. Buddhists revere it as a religious place where their famous Guru Rimpoche, Padmasambhava, meditated and attained paradise. As a result, Buddhist priests and disciples come to worship Halesi with the expectation of obtaining 10 additional years of life as well as regeneration.
In Tibetan, it is referred to as ‘Marathi.’ This holy site is revered as a chariot that leads from wrongdoing to right-doing, from illusion to truth, from crime to justice, and ultimately to judgment.
Similarly, the historical perspective on how this holy site with ensconced Mahadev was approached is as follows: “Once upon a time, there was a bushy jungle, and a certain Rai caste hunter was hunting in this area. He attempted to hunt a deer that had gotten lost in the brush. The shooting dog went into the bushes to look after the deer, but none of them returned.
Following that, the hunter requested guidance from the villagers and went to the bushes, where they discovered a cave. They reached the cave and discovered a huge Shivalinga encircled by a snake. They were overjoyed to see this and started to worship it as Lord Shiva’s temple. There are a number of other spiritual and mythological explanations for Halesi’s increasing religious importance.”

This is how the name of this holy site, which is situated in a peaceful natural hilly setting, is clarified by locals. “According to history, there was once a massive Madane (seedless fruit) tree just above the present Halesi Mahadev. At that tree, a bird called ‘Halesho’ used to chirp. As a result, elderly people agreed to call this location ‘Halesi’ after the name of the bird.
