The Twenty-four Tantric Power Places/ Guhyeshwari Temple .

"Guhyeshwari Temple (Nepali:गुह्येश्वरी मन्दिर), also spelled Guheswari or Guhjeshwari, is one of the revered holy temples in Kathmandu, Nepal. This temple is dedicated to Adi Shakti. This refers to the popular legend where Shiva distressed was carrying the corpse of Devi Sati and Vishu annihilated it with his Sudarshan Chakra. Shiva later declared the 51 such places where Devi Sati's body parts fell to be worshipped as the Shakti Peethas and meditated at all these places as various forms of Bhairavas. The place where Devi Sati's Gudda fell is Guheswari in Kathmandu. In Nepal the form of Shakti is Mahashira and the form of Bhairava is Kapali. King Pratap Malla built this temple in the 17th century.

The temple name originates from guhya (cave) and ishwari (goddess). Non-Hindus are not allowed to enter this temple.
Guheswari Temple is located near Pashupatinath Temple. It represents female force. The famous Temple of Guheswori lies about a km east of. Guheswori temple is located at the left bank of the Bagamati river.

During the Navrathri festival the King of Nepal accompanied by his families worships here after talking a holy bath in the river Bagmati. There are many believes related to the temple

It is believed that if a marriage take place in the Guhyeshwari temple, the couples will be soul mates for another 6 birth. Sati (goddess) married Shiva, and was reborn as Parvati on her next birth.

This temple is very gupt temple,only the sadhak of TANTRA knows about it,this place is as important as KAMAKHYA DEVI TEMPLE in Assam,but most of the year it remains a lonley place only in NAVRATRI find the rush.I Recomend reciting 100 path of SIDDHI KUNJIKA STROTRA for nine days in evening at Guheyswari Temple.
