Gorkha Nath Temple Gorkha is beautiful temple. It is not only Temple, Its historical King Place of the Royal Shaha Dinesty of Nepal more then 300 years!!! The King Prithithivi Narayan who unify Nepal was from this Place. Gorkha is origin of Nepal!!! Were you could see and analyses of cultural aspects. You cold see the beautiful Mansalu range views. The perfect hill top to see the sunset view with rusty sky!!!

Perfect for day hike and if you are going form Kathmandu or Pokhara I highly recommend you stay over night to see around the small and beautiful village town.

We kinda landed in Ghorka by chance, and the fact that the city is perhaps very little populated by tourists was a great pause from the usual tour. The palace is interesting not because it has a lot of things to see, but for all the things around it and the locals coming there for their religious rituals and of course, the monkeys. The trip to the palace is a medium/long stairway on a high hill in a cool jungle like setting. That part was really nice. It's a bit strange when at the top you reach a helipad at the entrance of the palace and what looks like a small base for the military. Inside the palace itself we could only enter one building with a barred small bed room where locals where tossing coins and the nearby Hindu prayer place. The palace was full of locals which made it quite authentic. It's not the most amazing experience but it has a certain charm. If you don't mind the stairs it's probably one of the best things to see in Gorkha.

Gorkha lies between Kathmandu and Pokhara. During a visit to Nepal it would be wise to visit this beautiful town. From the Durbar one can get a magnificent view of the Himalayas. There is a museum with ancient collection's from the Shah Dynasty.

.. and not just that of a slightly overweight English tourist puffing and panting his way up the 1500 or so steps that lead up to this imposing hill fort and temple. With Gorkha the epicentre of the recent earthquakes that devastated Nepal it seems churlish to write up a review of the place so soon in its wake. But when Nepal and her people recover, and they will recover then undeniably the tourist purse must contribute.

Little stalls selling a mixture of tourist trinkets and offerings for pilgrims to purchase dot the steps up. It's well worth stopping for a cup of chai, to take the view and have a chinwag with the locals. When the fort itself looms out of the trees it is an impressive sight, dominating the hill top. Monkeys dart across the walls, inveigling of titbits and posing for the obligatory snapshot.

Thought the temple itself may be mercifully free of tourists does not mean it is deserted. Far from it, this is a working temple with sacrifices going on all around you, the smell of incense, an multitude of colours from the powders adorning the various small shrines to various gods. One might feel then that tourists are not welcome, far from it. We almost passed as ghosts in the night. Somehow amidst all this activity, the weariness of my limbs from the ascent had passed.

This serene and captivating place in Gorkha is commonly referred to as the Goraknath Temple. Whether you have a fascination for religious exploration or simply seek a tranquil and picturesque destination to visit, this temple holds immense appeal.

We visited this attraction in Gorkha, Nepal in May 2019 and learned the true meaning of Gurkhas. This temple was located next to the palace of King Prithivi Narayan Shah (first king of Nepal). There is also a temple of Goddesses Kali. Although the palace is being renovated due to 2015 earthquake. One of the locals said the soldiers during the war between several kingdoms around 17-18th century (at the time of King Prithivi) would chant the name of Gorkhnath and Kali together which would sound like "Gorakhkali". After getting the blessing from their Gods they would fight. Later it was termed as "Gurkhas" by the British- the fiercest soldiers.
