The Rautahat district of Province 2 is one that encompasses the heart, soul and spirit of the Terai nation. You don’t have to drive far from Chandranigahapur, the district headquarters, to get a Rautahat experience. For eg, just around 16 km north-east of Chandranigahapur lies Nunthar, a small settlement of great religious significance for locals. The goal of a traveler’s visit to Nepal is to see high mountains, intertwined hills and rivers flowing from high land, slowly losing their intensity in gentle meanders to the southern plains. Most of them stop there and are on their way out of the country. Yet they start on their way south, and they can see the other sight of Nepal — that of Tarai, abundant in large landmasses, forests, grasslands, and lowlands populated by indigenous communities with different cultural backgrounds.

The temple is thought to be more than 100 years old, with myth and myth woven into its narrative. There is a large pool of acidic water on the south side of the building. Locals claim that the water in the well has curing powers and make frequent trips to the temple to peruse the water from the well.

The Committee has invested Rs 10 million so far on the development of a children’s park . It is for picnic places, fishing sites and boating facilities in the Bagmati River.
