The site is close to the village of Ranipauwa. According Hinduism, it is called Mukti Kshetra, which literally means the place of liberation or moksha. The ancient name of this place in Sri Vaishnava literature, before Buddhist origin clarification needed, is Thiru Saligram (Fossils). This clarification needed houses the Saligrama shila, considered to be the naturally available form of Sriman Narayana the Hindu Godhead. It is also one of the 51 Shaktipeethams. The Buddhists call it Chumig Gyatsa, which in Tibetan means Hundred Waters. Although the temple has a Vaishnava origin, it is also revered in Buddhism. For Tibetan Buddhists, Muktinath-Chumig Gyatsa is a very important place of Dakinis, goddesses known as Sky Dancers, and one of the 24 Tantric places. They understand the murti (statue) to be a manifestation of Avalokitesvara. Himalaya Family Adventure offers this tour round the year.
