The Holy Barahi Temple is situated on an island of Phewa lake. Barahi is one of the Asta matrikas, a group eight mother goddesses in the Hindu religion. With the head of a sow, Barahi is the shakti (feminine energy, or sometimes, consort) of Baraha, the boar incarnation of the god Vishnu. In Nepal, she is called Barahi. Varahi is worshipped by all the three major schools of Hinduism: Shaktism (goddess worship), Shaivism (followers of the god Shiva) and Vaishnavism (devotion to Vishnu). To visit this temple it needs few minutes of boating.
