Pharping is the place where Guru Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche) had attended enlightenment. So, it is one of the most sacred sites related to him. For Tibetan Buddhists, the hills of Pharping are believed to be as sacred as Bodhgaya in India. Within the area of Pharping, there are two sacred caves, Asura cave and Yanglesho cave on the mountainside, several Tibetan Buddhist Monasteries and retreat centers in and around this small town.

Nagi Gumba is a popular monastery located in the middle of your journey to the Shivapuri Peak from the Pani Muhan.
