Budhanilkantha temple is situated at the foot of Shivpuri hills in Kathmandu valley.
The shrine has probably the largest stone idol of Lord Vishnu in Nepal reclining on a bed of Nagas or serpents in the middle of a small pond.
Shree Budhanilkantha temple has great religious and cultural significance for Hindus all over the world. Thousands of pilgrims apart from tourists from India and other parts of the world visit temple everyday.
The newly constructed Mathadhis building in the temple premises would stand as an important icon of age-old cultural bond between India and Nepal. It has been constructed with Government of India’s grant assistance of 21.80 million Nepali rupees. The three storied building will house Mathadhis and several young monks. The project underlines the importance accorded by India to the preservation and promotion of the rich religious, cultural and historical heritage of Nepal.
