The Seat of Chaturmukha Siva

The very names of shrines, like Swayambhunath, Bodhnath, Pasupathinath etc, or the names of presiding deities make the hearers feel that they are moving about in a big Indian city studded with shrines, dedicated to several gods of the Hindu pantheon, in spite of the fact of seeing huge Bouddha stupas and Chaityas at many places. Does this not register the inestimable influence, Hinduism has on Napalese life? They are Hindus first and last, inspirit and character, despite living away from Hindu India? Take for example the name of the capital-Katmandu and examine its origin. It is the vernacular version of Kashta Mandap, original Sanskrit word. Katmand in ancient times was called Kantipur meaning thereby, a temple of wood. Once there was built a huge temple with a Dharmasala, out of the wood of a single tree. Sounds incredible, isn't it? Some may even construe it ,as a figment of imagination too. But none as such did enter the :arena, or operate here. It has a fantastic story, and in all probability, It is an acceptable fact too.
