Khadga Devi temple

Abhinav Singh
Khadga Devi: I climbed up stone steps to find this temple locked. The architecture is not much. In fact it looks like an ordinary village house on first glimpse. I walked around the temple and noticed the sculptures of Hindu deities around the temple walls. I spent some time here. It is a quiet place and walking distance from the heritage area. You need to walk for some time on muddy path to reach here. During the Nepali festival Dasain, animal sacrifice is done here with the sword of Mukunda Sen. He was 16th century king of Palpa. The sword called Khadga is considered sacred and is seen as a symbol of shakti. People from different nearby villages congregate here every year to participate in the festivities.
