“Best Cable car to visit Wish Full filling Goddess Manakamana”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2011

Visit to Manakamana in a cable car is a very good experience. A cable car can accomodate six pax at a time. It takes about 15 mins to reach the temple from bottom station but takes only 10 mins to come down. Going higher and watching the spectacular surrounding landscapes from there is very exciting. The temple is always full of devotees but when we went there it was some ocassion so the queue was almost 1.5 km at the bottom station and not less than 5oo m at the temple premisses. The goddess Manakamana is believed to be wish fulfilling goddess. She is also a patron goddess of former Royal family (shah kings).
When we came down from nthe temple, it was sunny day there but as our cable car came down there ws a thick fog all around, to experience something like this was very unique experience.
