Situated at the small flat top of an isolated hill with steep sides at Pelkachaur of the Syangja District is Nakachu Panchamukhi Shiwalaya Dham, also popularly called as Nakachu Mahadev in short.
This temple, now a popular religious tourist destination is one of the biggest attractions of the Millennium Trek. Nakachu Mahadev is at a height of approximately 1600m from the sea level and the noteworthy location of the temple provides the view of districts such as Tanahu, Palpa, Kaski, Managng, Gorkha and the mighty mountains Ganesh Himal, Annapurna, Machapuchhre, Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Tukuche, Kanjiroba etc
The Nakachu Mahadev of Pelkachaur was built very recently, in the year 2013 after Khem Gurung’s recurring dream about this place and Lord Shiva. He initiated the setup of a Shiva Temple atop the hill and since then, the place and the surrounding villagers that used to be affected by the very frequent lighting strikes among other small casualties are in peace. Shiva, the supreme power according to the Hindu religious beliefs, has played an important role in the protection of this area since the formation of this temple.
Surrounded by lush green rolling green hills, the Nakachu Mahadev temple is a remarkable place to visit. The temple has a significant religious value and is an exemplary temple of the Syangja District. One that has taken spiritual tourism in Pelkachaur, Syangja to a different level.
Try visiting this spiritual place and you will be blessed with the presence of Shiva as well as the calming effect of Nature.
