Muktinath, Jomsom is a major center in the Annapurna region. Though it is situated in a difficult topography still you can find good hotels from where one can enjoy the mountain views. Hindus regard Muktinath as the incarnation of Lord Bishnu where-as Buddhists regard it as Buddha. Muktinath- means to provide Salvation. Muktinath is the only shrine where both Hindu and Buddhist priest Dom is found. A Shradha (the rituals after the death) at the confluence of Kag khola and river Kaligandagi at Kagbeni and worship after that in the shrine of lord Muktianth is heavenly and boon bestowing. One would be enlightened and thrilled to have the Darshan of Lord Vishnu flanked by the idols of His divine consorts Goddess Lakshmi and Goddess earth on right and left.
