According to a Hindu myth, Shiva fled Halesi from a demon called Bhasmasura, whose purpose was to kill him, and fled to Halesi. When Shiva broke through the ceiling of the cave and fled, Vishnu tricked the monster and killed him. As Shiva Mahadeva stepped on the wall before disappearing from the hole, he is said to have left a large footprint on the ceiling of the wall. This woodland was used to hunt by a Rai caste hunter centuries later.
The hunting dog and he searched for the deer in the bushes, but neither returned after the deer ran into the bushes. The villagers helped them find a cave in the bushes. A Shivalinga wrapped in a serpent was found in the cave when they entered it, which surprised them. They became overjoyed to see it and started worshiping it as a Shivalinga place.
A Tibetan Buddhist named the place Halesi after visiting it and pronounced “holyasso,” a Tibetan word for “place of wonders.” The word became distorted and people called it Halesi as a result. Maratika is regarded as a sacred place in Hindu tradition where “all three mandalas have been completed, a jewel that surpasses any other place in India in fulfilling spiritual seekers’ wishes.”
Buddhism reveres it as the place where the great Guru Rimpoche, Padmasambhava attained immortality through meditation.
It is interesting to visit Halesi’s cave shrine because of its geological features. It is common to find caves and potholes surrounding the small hamlet of Halesi with naturally created cavities, leading to a variety of rock constructions. A wide variety of pilgrims cross these narrow corridors, and now these corridors are known as paapdwaras, dharmadwaras, garbhadwaras, svargadwaras, and karmadwaras.
It has been said that Halesi Mahadev is a mysterious sign from the gods and is one of the world’s most astonishing geological formations. It is believed that the founder of the Kirat religion originated here, and Hindus venerate Halesi Mahadev as one of their six main pilgrimage sites. Buddhists venerate Halesi as one of their six key pilgrimages.
Many people come here to perform soul searching, religious and spiritual quests for salvation, and it is regarded as a mystical and spiritual location in Nepal.
