6, Dec 2020 | nepaltraveller.com

Mr. Kamal Jain always felt a sense of wanting to present an offering to Lord Shiva for everything he had bestowed upon him.


We have heard stories of devotees’ making unimaginable quests, to gratify the Goddesses and Gods. Whether it be standing in a queue for hours, making sacrifices and offerings, providing a donation to religious homes, or devoting one’s entire life in the name of God, we have heard many such stories. Similarly, Kailashnath Mahadev also holds a history that evolved from a very hardworking and successful devotee, Mr. Kamal Jain.

Kailash Mahadev Statue is one of the tallest Shiva temples in the world. The first tallest statue is of the Hindu deity, Garuda Wisnu Kencana that stands in Bali, Indonesia. Then comes, Kailash Mahadev Statue of Lord Shiva. It is 143 feet tall, made with zinc, copper, and steel. It stands on the border of the Bhaktapur and Kavrepalanchowk district of Nepal. Mr. Kamal Jain, a successful businessman who established ‘HIlltake’, always felt a sense of wanting to present an offering to Lord Shiva for everything he had bestowed upon him. Then after visiting an immense statue of Shiva in Birla temple, he came up with a life-time achievement idea of Kailashnath Mahadev Statue.

The construction began in 2003 and was completed in 2010. Various engineers from Nepal and India have put together their experience to build this immense and glorious statue. The offering of Mr. Kamal Jain turned out to be a remarkable contribution to the Hindu religion as well as for Nepalese tourism. Thousands of visitors come to ko Kailashnath on weekdays, weekends, and other holidays. One can see a great crowd during Mahashivaratri.

The construction of this statue is a very significant achievement both for Kamal Jain and the economy of Nepal. The temple has led to the development of national and international tourism and helped in upliftment in the economy of villages nearby.
