Babiyachaur (Myagdi), October 2

The historic Mallaj Kot temple based in Jaljala Rural Municipality-3, Myagdi has been reconstructed while the construction of additional new infrastructures at the site has neared the completion.

The temple of Hindu Goddess Bhagawati is believed to have been built some 500 years ago. Locals said the temple could be promoted as a tourist spot. The temple was reconstructed at the cost of Rs 10 million through donations collected from the locals, said Temple Reconstruction Committee chair Tek Bahadur GC.

Shreemad Bhagawat and Dhan Dhanyanchal Bishwa Shanti Gyan Mahayagya, religious events, were held in December, 2015 to collect funds for reconstructing the temple.
