The Seat of Chaturmukha Siva

THE TELAJU TEMPLE

Next object that lures the visitors' attention is the royal temple, and the deity adored here is called Telaju - a war-goddess. The goddess is held in high veneration by every Nepali. The temple is not what it was; it is changed owing to willful destruction caused by the Brahmin community. It has an interesting tale. According to the legend, one of the princes developed hopeless passion for a charming buxom Brahmin beauty. He married her without parents' consent. The enraged Brahmin community wreaked vengeance by bringing the grand temple to the ground level. Their irrepressible anger together with the royal highhandedness is thus exposed by this shrine now. There is a belief that the temple the treasuring a "pointed diamond transmuted from the frontal bone of a Himalayan yogi, and that the very same arrow which brought down Ravana, the king of Ceylon by Sri Rama has this pointed diamond at its tip". So, Sri Rama's arrow is here preserved and worshipped. What Hindu India could not get or retain, the alien Nepal gained it and is adoring as a relic. How grand! Let us stand and salute.
