Visiting the Lower Mustang area in the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal, Jomsom, and Kagbeni all of which are at lower elevations, the town of Muktinath lies nearly 12,500 feet high. At Muktinath temple, the water is captured and diverted into 108 fountains in the shape of bulls heads, where it rungs everlastingly into a three-sided enclosure that surrounds Muktinath temple. Muktinath is one of the biggest and sacred holy places for Hindu people. 

Muktinath Darshan is a popular tour package for Hindu people who come in Nepal to visit Pashupatinath Temple, Dakshinkali Temple as well as the biggest holy place Kailash. It's believed that after visiting Mt. Kailash and many other sacred places devotes must visit Muktinath at the end. 

The Hindus call it Muktichhetra (Place of salvation) is one of the four religious sites. Many Shaligrams (Ammonite) found here are considered by Hindu as the incarnation of Lord Vishnu and worship them. According to Hindu Myth, Lord Vishnu turned into Shaligram because of Brindas Curse. The Jwala Mai temple has a spring and there are three eternal flames Holy flame from the soil, the Holy flame from rock and Holy flame from water fed by natural gas. Apparently, two flames are continuously burning. The Hindus believe that this fire was lit as an offering made by Brahma himself, (the creator) as he set water on fire.

Muktinath is also an important site for Tibetan Buddhists, who call it Chumig Gyatsa, which means Hundred Waters in Tibetan. Muktinath is one of the 24 Tantric places in the world and home to the Dakinis, goddesses known as Sky Dancer. Narshingh Gompa, a smaller temple within the larger Muktinath site, holds a golden icon said to be a manifestation of Avalokitesvara, a bodhisattva who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas and of whom the current Dalai Lama is said to be an emanation.
