Swargadwari : The Place Where Pandavas Entered Heaven From


Swargadwari is one of the ancient temples not only of Pyuthan but also of Nepal. TheĀ  Ashram in the western part of Pyuthan is about 2,100 meters above sea level. Pyuthan’s main market is only 23 kilometers away from Bagdula. It is believed that 108 Mahapramu Baltapasvi Shri Narayan Gautam, born in 1916 BS in Rumti village of Rolpa district, came to Swargadwari in 1951 BS.

In mythological times, it is believed that it is the gateway through which the Pandavas go to heaven. There is a belief in Swargadwari that there is a historical fire pit, a cave, Mahadev’s way to heaven, cows raised here, and seeing Mahaprabhu will bring goodness and fulfill one’s aspirations and cure leprosy.



Before Prabhu became a Brahmin in 1997, there were about 1,000 cows in the ashram. At present, there are more than 400 cows. There is a cave at the top of Swargadwari. It is said that the Lord used to return from the cave through the gate of Lungri Madi at a distance of 2,300 meters below for bathing.

Currently, the gate of the cave is called the gate of heaven (the way to heaven) and Guptisagar. The Lord is considered to be the incarnation of Shiva. Only Shivaji is worshiped in Pashupatinath’s temple, while Swargadwari is the only temple in the world that is run according to the rites of the Hindus.
