The other day, the actual journey to Pathivara Temple begins. As Pathibhara temple carries religious importance, many local tourists and devotees want to worship the Devi without eating. There is the belief that we should not worship God in our full stomach i.e we should offer the food to the god and consumed it as ‘Prasad‘. So the local followers take bath early in the morning and head toward the Pathivara Temple with lots of faith and respect.

When we reach chhaatedhunga in MathilloPhedi, we finally enter the Pathivara temple area.
After reaching the temple, the devotees pray to the Goddess Devi and make a new resolution to follow if their wish gets fulfilled. This process is called ‘Bhakel’ among the Nepalese locals. Although it is not a good culture to scarifies animals in the name of God, many people scarify animals in the name of giving ‘Bali’ to Devi. Nowadays, many people are against the ‘Bali Partha’ but yet not all are ready to end this ritual which was being followed for a long period of time. In this temple, it is believed that all the wishes prayed are fulfilled by Pathivara Devi.
