BHAGAWAN PASUPATHINATH OF NEPAL
The Seat of Chaturmukha Siva

THE ORIGIN OF KATMAND

According to legend, during the reign of Narsimha Mall, a ruler of great fare and spiritual eminence, there used to be brisk `religious activity through out the year, like holding discourses, conducting periodical festivals to gods and goddesses and taking out processions with all fanfare. The king encouraged and patronised it, and the people enjoyed and participated in them. It happened - Kalpavriksha - the wish yielding tree of paradise took fancy to witness the grand spectacle of the Machchendra festival procession celebrated every year with great pomp and splendor in the capital, as the Machchendranath is the royal deity of Nepal. A short background is found expedient here. When Narendra Das ruled the country, there descended a severe famine and it lasted for 12 years. The kind monarch then went to Assam to invite a great Buddhist saint to ward off the disaster.
