swarga dwari

wargadwari (स्वर्गद्धारी) is a hilltop temple complex and pilgrimage site in Pyuthan DistrictNepal commemorating the special role of cows inHinduism. It is said to have been founded by one Guru Maharaj who spent most of his life in the vicinity herding and milking thousands of cows. According to traditional stories, some of his devotees followed him to see where he took the cows, but they never could find him.

Before he left physical body the Guru gave some of his powers to a few disciples. On the day he departed his physical body by his own wish, a number of people gathered around him at the place where he habitually meditated. The Guru left his body after bidding goodbye to his disciples and other followers. His favourite cow also died at the same instant, then the rest of the cows miraculously disappeared within a few days. There are also accounts of cows emptying their milk by themselves every day at the same time, at the place where the Guru died.

Swargadwari is counted among Nepal’s top pilgrimage sites[1][2] and is listed in a national inventory of cultural and historic heritage sites.[3]

As of 2009, a cable car to the temple complex was under construction.[4] In the aftermath of the 1996-2006 Nepalese Civil War, donations of straw and hay had diminished to a point where resident cattle at Swargawari were in danger of starving.[5][6]
