Sankhu and Bajra Jogini Tour and Hiking

Lying at the north-eastern edge of Kathmandu Valley is the ancient settlement of Sankhu. This sleepy town was once on the important trade route east to Helambu. The neighbouring hillside is covered in dense forests, which hide a temple to a secret goddess, the Bajra Jogini. Her shrine is tucked away among tall, dark pines in a sacred, secluded spot. According to legend, the goddess has been residing here from time immemorial.

The central temple is located amidst a series of stupas housing a four dimensional Buddha. Built in the 17th century, it has three roofs and struts with figures of various deities. The tympanum is a work of art. Within the inner sanctum, the goddess is flanked by her two traditional companions, Singhini, the lioness and Baghini the tigress. Follow the wide stone path north of the village and climb up the steps to the temple, flanked by small shrines, stupas and statues. Behind the temple there are other shrines and sculptures.
