Trip to Swargadwari

Located over a hilltop in the Pyuthan district of Rapti Zone in Mid-Western Nepal is the famous pilgrimage Swargadwari (meaning Heaven’s Door). There are hundreds of people, especially Hindus, who travel to this place with a belief that this is the door to Heaven and one should try to get to Heaven to be blessed by God after his/her death. The place itself has a lot to offer to tourists from the pilgrimage, amazing views of Snowcapped Mountains, lush-green paddy fields, dense coniferous and rhododendron forests, and the rural life of Western Nepal. The area is maintained by Swargadwari Ashram Guthi which carries out daily rituals and operated the day-to-day activities of the Ashram. SwargadwariMahapravu proclaimed himself as the Avatara to reinstate the Dharma, Culture, yoga and to retard the unseen force of impeding catastrophe forecoming to the existing civilization. He performed Yagyas and spent all his life in this place herding and milking thousands of cows. He took his last breath (Samadhi) in this very place and all the rituals he started have been continued by his disciples to date.
