The Seat of Chaturmukha Siva


This Goddess is deemed as the eleventh of the eighteen Saktipeethas spread across the akhanda Bharat. She is the guardian deity of Nepal. and is worshipped with utmost devotional fervour. The installation of this statue in the complex has a strange background. During the reign of King Pratap Malla of solar dynasty, there came to the court a religious minded Brahmin from Tirhut in Bihar. He won the appreciation of the King by his austerity, and was liked by all the couturiers. One day, he confided to the king that there was the image of an august Goddess hidden in the forest and she was very powerful. The king forthwith bade his assistants to make an intensive search for it. The quest bore instant fruit. The king built a fitting shrine in the Pasupathinath complex itself. After due ritualistic pujas, she was enshrined in an independent temple .and with a special tantric yantra too. And since then she is adored by one and all with great zeal with different names such as kali or Mahamayi, though Guhneswari was the name given at the time installation due to the fact its concealment from the public gaze in the forest. And popularity is waking on account of her compassionate raining booms on the address.
