Design of Muktinath Temple
The central spot of love of Sri Muktinath is considered by Hindu Vaishnavas to be one of the eight most-sanctified safe-havens, known as Svayam Vyakta Ksetras. The others are Srirangam, Srimushnam, Tirupati, Naimisharanya, Thotadri, Pushkar and Badrinath. The temple is close to nothing. The murti is gold and the size of a man.
The prakaram (outer yard) has 108 bull faces through which water is poured. The blessed water that streams in 108 lines around the temple complex connotes the consecrated Pushkarini waters (Temple Tanks) from the 108 Sri Vaishnava Divya Desams, where fans wash up even in cold temperatures.
The Muktinath Temple is seen as a Shakti Peetha for a yatra. It is one of the 108 Siddhpeeth and is named Mahadevi [Devibhagwat 7.14]. Shakti Peethas are blessed places of Shakti (beginning phase huge energy), outlined by the falling body bits of the collection of Sati Devi, when Lord Shiva passed on it as he wandered. 51 Shakti Peethas are worshiped by Shaktism, partner them to the 51 letter sets in Sanskrit. Each Shakti Peetha has a Shakti temple and a Bhairav spot of love in its temple. The Shakti of Muktinath is tended to as "Gandaki Chandi", and the Bhairava as "Chakrapani". Sati Devi's temple on the temple is acknowledged to have fallen there
