Subarneshwor Mahadev Temple(LuchuMahadya)

Subarneshwor Mahadev Temple is not so far from the Ananatalingeswor Mahadeva Temple. Although these temples are in two different places, they carry the same portion of geography, on top of the hills. You could notice that most of the temples in Nepal lie upon a hill station. Thus, you need to struggle a little to reach over there.

This temple of Subarneshwor Mahadev is also a central attraction that reclines in the wilderness. Besides, there is a natural Shivalinga inside the temple which is also worshipped as Lun chu Mahadya (Mahadev who blesses his devotees with gold) and people attend pujas time and again over there.

Subarneshwor Mahadev temple, on the other hand, houses a Pati, Bhajan Mandali, Pipal tree, and tap water along with the temple itself. The available inscriptions on the temple say that the temple dates back to 753 A.D.

Furthermore, the location of the temple (Katunnje) with its height lets us have a nice look over Bhaktapur city along with the other two ancient cities of Nepal i.e, Kathmandu and Lalitpur. Since the Subarneshwor temple lies in between the Bhaktapur Nagar and Madhyapur Thimi it is also easily accessible for the people of both Nagaras.

Besides the religious importance and purposes, this place is very much come in use for picnics. People go there to enjoy their holidays, but yes, you have to book the place in advance to have a picnic. The locals use this place for morning and evening walks.

Well, you could try saying Jai Shambo to the strangers (devotees) and see what their reply would be.
