Muktinath is the prominent pilgrimage spot for both Hindu and Buddhist. To the Hindu, Muktinath is a blessed as the place of salvation. They consider the water here assures salvation after death. To the Buddhist it is the place that the great sage Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava) meditated at. This place is also the source of fossilized ammonites, known locally as shaligrams.
